Coming down out of Incline, there was a brake issue on the bus so Sharon, the bus driver, pulled over. Someone called 9-1-1 and paramedics and emergency crews responded. Due to smoke, two students were nauseous and with parent approval, were taken to a hospital where they were checked out and immediately released, according to School Superintendent, Dr. Merrill Grant, who called it "very precautionary."
Another bus was dispatched to get the kids home. A letter was sent home with kids the next day about the incident from Principal Tom Jones.
The busses are leased from Plumas County and Dr. Grant said Plumas is going through the bus concerning the brake issue.
Dr. Grant said he is happy with the personnel and the chaperones were outstanding. He noted this is the first break down of a bus in a year a half.
