      An accident on Thursday morning involving a bus, logging truck and three passenger vehicles sent three to the hospital.

      It happened at around 8 a.m. on US-2 in Manistique Township near the Kewadin Casino. Sheriff John Norrington says a preliminary investigation indicated that a logging truck struck a vehicle stopped behind a bus picking up students.

      He said that it appears slick road conditions prevented the logging truck driver be being able to stop in time. None of the 25 children on board the bus were injured.

      The three people transported to the hospital did not appear to have life-threatening injuries, according to police.
