An Alameda County jail transport bus with an unspecified number of incarcerated passengers aboard encountered mechanical difficulties and came to a halt on Highway 24 in Orinda Friday.
Law enforcement helicopters provided overwatch while law enforcement from Alameda and Contra Costa counties responded to provide security at the scene.
So this incident was just like the movie The Fugitive, except without the bus crash, train wreck, escape, hunt for the one-armed man, dramatic fight on rooftop, or happy ending with the proven innocence of Richard Kimble. It just has the stopped bus part.
Sadly for movie fans, yes. Happily, for fans of public safety… not a lot of drama!
