The first responders who worked in connection with the deadly September bus crash in Wawayanda received a special thank you Thursday.
Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus met with some of the heroes at an after-action review.
That included the first person on scene, a volunteer Pennsylvania firefighter who was working his full-time trucking job when he passed by the wreck and jumped out to help.
Two teachers were killed and 45 were hurt, mostly students, after a bus flipped over on I-84.
Investigators are still trying to figure out exactly what caused the crash, though, first responders have said it looks like a bad tire is at least partially responsible.
