MTI shuttle bus bursts info flames on interstate

Posted: Updated:

A shuttle bus burst into flames Wednesday, and caused delays on I-285 in North Fulton County.

It turns out the company that owns that bus has a history of problems. Once again MTI Limo and Shuttle Services is in the spotlight.

On May 24, 2013 the company ran into problems, when one of their drivers ran into a semi-truck near the airport, injuring more than a dozen passengers. It turns out the driver wasn't properly licensed, and the tires on the bus were in poor condition.

Then early Wednesday morning, more trouble. Sandy Springs Police confirmed the bus engulfed in flames belonged to MTI. There were no passengers on board at the time of the fire.

The towing service that transported the burned out bus, informed CBS Atlanta News, that Georgia's Motor Carrier Compliance Division is investigating the incident.
