ULEN — The Minnesota State Patrol said a 15-year-old boy driving a stolen school bus has crashed into a pickup truck on a northwestern Minnesota highway and injured himself and two others.

Patrol Sgt. Jesse Grabow said the sideswipe wreck happened early Sunday in Clay County’s Ulen. The patrol said the 33-year-old male pickup driver from Twin Valley was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t life threatening.

Authorities said the teen driver and another boy on the small bus also sustained injuries that weren’t life threatening. They left the scene but authorities found them nearby and took them to the county juvenile detention center in Moorhead.
