A NorthWood High School senior was in critical condition Friday evening after falling off a truck the night before.

Graff was on the back bumper, and another NorthWood senior was on the truck’s side running board. Dijkstra said Graff fell from the vehicle and hit her head on the pavement.

Dijkstra said Friday morning that Graff had been admitted to Memorial Hospital’s intensive care unit.
