A Staten Island bus line that stranded 53 passengers at a Virginia truck stop for 24 hours has been closed by federal authorities.
 
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration says it shut down Staten Island-based All Nations Coach after discovering it was a reincarnation of another company shut down a year earlier for safety violations.

  The agency says All Nations had the same owners, drivers, routes, managers and vehicles as the previously closed Tichy Express.
 
The investigation was already underway when an All Nations bus traveling from Charlotte, N.C. to New York broke down at midnight on I-95 last month.
 
Replacement transportation didn't arrive until the following night.
 
All Nations owner Aryana Dilla denied there was any subterfuge. She said she did everything she could to help the stranded passengers.
