Four teenagers were injured and Highway 305 was blocked for more than 2 1/2 hours Friday afternoon after a Poulsbo girl pulled in front of a Kitsap Transit bus that was traveling north on the highway and her 2012 Mini Cooper was struck by the bus.

The collision occurred just after 1 p.m. July 12 about a mile south of Poulsbo.

According to the Washington State Patrol, a 17-year-old from Poulsbo was waiting at Lemolo Shore Drive and tried to cross the highway to Totten Road.

The bus was heading north on Highway 305 and hit the Mini Cooper on the passenger side as the vehicle was crossing the roadway.

The teen driver was hurt in the crash and was taken by an aid car to Harrison Hospital, according to the State Patrol.

Three teenage passengers in the Mini Cooper were also injured.

A 17-year-old girl from Poulsbo was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, and another 17-year-old girl in the vehicle, also from Poulsbo, was taken by an aid car to Harrison Hospital, and a third passenger, a 16-year-old Gig Harbor girl, was taken to Harrison Hospital, as well.

The driver of the 2003 Gillig transit bus, a 45-year-old Bremerton man, was treated by paramedics and released at the scene.

The bus was removed from the crash site by Kitsap Transit. The Mini Cooper was totaled and impounded by Chico Towing.

The State Patrol said the crash was due to the teen driver failing to yield the right of way.

Charges are pending for failure to yield the right of way, as well as an intermediate license violation.
