Washington County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the accident scene at 334th Sreet and Tualatin Valley Highway in an unincorporated area west of Hillsboro shortly after 11 a.m. April 8th.

According to a news release, the bus had just completed a stop at a marked bus stop, signaled, and began to pull away traveling about 5-mph when it was hit from behind by a Dodge Durango driven by 22-year old Christopher McGuire.

Deputies said investigation indicated the Durango was speeding, and McGuire was cited for reckless driving.

Both McGuire and his passenger were transported to Tuality Hillsboro hospital with reported minor injuries.
