Stranded group gets new bus

By David Bray - email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) – A generous gift helps a group of stranded, self-proclaimed hippies get back on the road again.

They had been stuck in Lake Charles since the transmission failed on their bus last week.

On Tuesday morning, they found out they were getting a new bus. It was donated by Lake Charles Specialized Rentals.

The group says it will now continue as planned to Austin, Texas.
