This was today I-40 outside of Nashville: It can happen anytime, anywhere, to any coach.

Tow Company may have bought that one. Looks like it may have been under tow when that fire started. Brakes may not have been released. Just a guess on my part.

I agree with Johnny. Obviously the coach was being towed when the fire started.

However, that doesn't automatically mean it was caused by the brakes.

Too bad for the Prevost. Not a fun thing to see.

You guy's are pretty good.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says the bus, en route to Hendersonville form Mississippi, had already broken down on I-40 and was being towed when it caught fire.

No one was on the bus at the time.

It is not clear who owns the tour bus.


Rob, looks like you, and me need to be a little more observant!
