HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) - A major school bus manufacturer is recalling more than 1,800 buses to repair a faulty part.
The parent company of High Point, N.C.-based Thomas Built Buses says it initiated a safety recall campaign and has alerted the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. It says a bolt included in the clamp assembly may break when it's subjected to stress.
The federal agency says the recall involves three series of Thomas Built school buses manufactured from Sept. 1 through Dec. 31 of last year. The High Point Enterprise reported ( http://bit.ly/oBVDiA) that the recall involves clamps on engines supplied for the buses by Cummins Inc.
Thomas Built Buses is a unit of Daimler Trucks North America LLC, which is part of German Automaker Daimler AG.
