ALOHA, OR (KPTV) - A crash involving a TriMet bus and a box truck blocked lanes of Southwest Tualatin Valley Highway in the Aloha area on Tuesday.

Emergency crews responded to the crash around 11:30 a.m. Deputies said it occurred near Southwest 192nd Avenue.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office said the bus was either at a stop or in the process of stopping when the box truck tried to pass it, but crashed into it.

The TriMet bus had passengers on board when the crash occurred, according to the sheriff’s office. Deputies said four passengers were taken to the hospital "out of an abundance of caution."

Deputies said several lanes were blocked due to the crash. A large fuel leak was expected to keep the eastbound lanes of the highway closed for several hours. Drivers were advised to use alternate routes. 

FOX 12 has a crew on the way to the scene and will continue to update this story.
