Hastings says the bus driver, 44-year old Roger Peterson of southeast Portland, attempted to avoid the crash, crossed over the median and ended up in the westbound lanes.

There were no injuries requiring medical transport.

The roadway was covered in snow and ice at the time of the crash. Highway 26 eastbound lanes were closed about 45 minutes.

No other names or information is available at this time.

OSP troopers were assisted by Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Sandy Police Department, Boring Fire Department, and AMR.
