Driver checks out, without checking in

The horror!

Leaving the bus idling for 5 hours!  The pollution!  The waste of fuel!!

They'll probably try to bill his estate.

Bus idles for 5 hours with dead driver
NBCNew York -

Officials are trying to determine why an NJ Transit bus with a dead driver inside idled for nearly five hours at the Port Authority terminal in New York.      

Thomas Truex was found slumped in a passenger seat around 3 p.m., hours after he dropped off his last commuters Thursday morning.

When Truex didn't return the bus to the Meadowlands garage as planned, NJ Transit officials called his wife, but she hadn't seen him.
