Four people were taken to the hospital after a school bus crash Monday morning in Hamblen County.

A report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol says a 2012 Ford Fiesta driven by a 16-year-old was entering Andrew Johnson Highway from Bethesda Road around 7:25 a.m. and pulled out into the path of Grainger County school bus number 52, causing the two vehicles to collide.

The Fiesta spun out and ended up in a ditch. The bus also spun and went off the roadway, hitting a utility pole.

The 16-year-old driver and three students on the bus were taken to Morristown Hamblen Hospital for treatment of injuries. 

The driver was charged with failure to yield.
