ela injury....or what caused the bus to crash in the first place. all of that is still under investigation. as far as the driver... there's been no official word as to how she's doing... but eyewitnesses said she was talking when she was taken to the hospital. there were no children on the bus when all this happened. it's not clear yet if she had just dropped off any children in this neighborhood. wake county schools had tra staff on scene earlier... and say they're also looking into this. a 'haze' -- is 'blanketing' the 'skies' over the triangle... and it'll 'blanketing' the 'skies' over the triangle... and it'll stick around -- for 'part' of the weekend. the 'smoke' -- from the 'wildfires' -- in the 'western part'

of the fire zone in rutherford county. - "it's hard to believe you can drive 4 hours in a car going 60 miles an hour and then in 3 or 4 days smoke can drift that far." it's not just smoke drifting... health concerns carry over too. the state urging children, the elderly, anyone sensitive to the air pollution to limit time outdoors. - "if you have to go outdoors, i would use a mask if you're going to be there for an extended period of tim --bell ringing nats-- on city plaza, it's ren day's job to ride his bike outside. - "we try to don't go as hard and don't ride as tough as we normally would. because, definetly you can start weazing after a little while." and in dorothea dix park... - "i'm just doing a pretty short easy run." anna catherine dickens' jog through this typically postcard worthy running trail... looked a lot different on this day... she wasn't worried about how it felt, though. - "i think my biggest concern is just less my lungs, than the people in the
their homes, their businesses." what's so concerning about this air-- are those particulates... those tiny bits of dust and burned material floating in the air-- that can get deep into our lungs. the good news.. this smoke will clear the triangle soon. the news not so good out west. jbrabc11ewn. i'm here in the first alert storm center with chief meteorologist chris hohmann... chr, weekend? smoke from western north carolina forest fires spread into the region this afternoon, reducing visibilities and causing air quality to deteriorate. the triangle and points north are under code orange air quality
