All lanes and offramps on eastbound state Highway 37 in Vallejo have been cleared this morning after a collision between a big rig truck and bus caused closures for about three hours, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The two-vehicle crash was reported at about 2:35 a.m. just west of Interstate Highway 80, according to CHP Officer Tom Stewart. At least five people on the bus suffered minor injuries in the crash, Stewart said.

The Highway 37 offramps to Columbus Parkway and westbound Highway 80 were closed due to the crash, which also partially blocked the No. 2 lane of Highway 37.

The offramps and lane were reopened at about 5:35 a.m., according to CHP Officer Marc Johnston.
