ROME TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A dozen students have gone to a hospital after their school bus collided with a pickup truck on a busy southeastern Michigan highway.

Lenawee County Undersheriff Jim Anderson says two students are in serious condition Wednesday afternoon following the morning crash on U.S. 223 in Rome Township, about 60 miles southwest of Detroit.

Anderson says 21-year-old Tyler Smith told authorities his view was obstructed by two parked delivery trucks as he drove his pickup from a gas station into the path of the bus about 7:15 a.m.

Smith was in critical condition Wednesday afternoon.

Anderson says the bus was carrying 25 Onsted Community Schools students. Most of the students were elementary school-aged.

District parents have been notified about the crash by telephone and email.

The accident is under investigation.
