School buses recalled

HIGH POINT, N.C. – A major school bus manufacturer is recalling 1,825 buses to repair a faulty part.

The parent company of High Point, N.C.-based Thomas Built Buses said it initiated a safety recall campaign and has alerted the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. It said a bolt included in the clamp assembly might break when it’s subjected to stress.

The federal agency said 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 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.
