FORT DEPOSIT, Ala. (AP) - Authorities said passengers aboard a Megabus that had a mechanical breakdown in Alabama were aboard another bus and on their way New Orleans.

WSFA-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1kXF6dh) that passengers were stuck in Fort Deposit on Wednesday after the bus unexpectedly lost its air conditioning system and the driver later became ill.

The bus was heading from Atlanta to New Orleans when it lost air conditioning around 5 p.m. Wednesday and pulled into a service station.

Sean Hughes, the company’s associate director of corporate affairs, said a relief bus had arrived by late Wednesday evening to take the passengers to New Orleans. The Montgomery station reports that another driver had been found to replace the one who got sick.

In a statement, Megabus apologized and said all the passengers are getting a full refund.
