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

Police Chief Julie Dijkstra said Ryan Kelly, 18, a NorthWood senior, was driving a 2011 Chevrolet pick-up truck south in the east parking lot. 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.
