NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Authorities are looking into a disturbing incident that took place at the Port Authority terminal in New York City.

An NJ Transit bus with a dead driver in it idled there for almost five hours Thursday.

A passenger found Thomas Truex slumped in a passenger seat on board the bus. The bus was parked in a spot where drivers take coffee or bathroom breaks.

Truex drove a bus for 26 years. Authorities started looking for him when he didn’t return to the Meadowlands garage on time.

His death isn’t considered suspicious.
