OLIVE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- Three teenagers from Careerline Tech Center were injured, one seriously, when their pickup truck clipped a school bus and rolled over.

The crash happened Thursday morning at 120th Avenue, just south of Croswell Street. 

According to the Grand Haven Tribune, Brian Graftema, 19, of Conklin, tried to pass the Allendale school bus, but lost control and clipped the bus, causing his truck to rollover several times.

His back seat passenger, Tianna Bigelow, 16, of Hudsonville, was ejected from the vehicle and was hospitalized with serious injuries.

Graftema and his front seat passenger, Tyler Brandham, 18, of Coopersville, were also injured and were in stable condition.

The Allendale bus was full of kids from the tech center at the time. No children on the bus suffered injuries, and they were transferred to another bus after the incident.

Two sheriff's cruisers were following behind the truck when the truck went to pass the bus, and deputies witnessed the incident.
