No Injuries after Bus Engine Starts Smoking

Some tense moments on a TOR bus yesterday in Nanuet, and it could have been worse. Officials say the bus was traveling westbound on Route 59 near Smith Street around 2:15 yesterday afternoon when smoke started coming from the engine compartment. The county executive’s office says there was no sign of a fire and no melting of any part of the bus. The Nanuet Fire Department responded, determined that it was a non-event and left the scene. All 20 passengers got out of the bus safely and were put on another bus travelling the same route. The County Executive Ed Day directed TOR bus operator, Brega Transport, to immediately report the incident to the Public Transportation Safety Board.
