Dr. Mehmet Oz, the famed heart surgeon and television personality, was driving along the New Jersey Turnpike this weekend when he saw a bus on fire. He started filming.

He posted a video of the smoking vehicle on Facebook, writing: "The passengers were students from a high school in Baltimore who were on their way home after seeing the musical 'Wicked' in New York City."

Except, according to a spokesman for Prince George's County Public Schools, they weren't from Baltimore.

"They are students at Northwestern High School, which is in Hyattsville, Maryland," said spokesman John White. The two cities are roughly 35 miles apart.

Oz's video has been viewed nearly 200,000 times.

White said that three buses full of Northwestern students were on their way back from New York this weekend after seeing "Wicked" and taking dance and theater classes with performers. A tire blew out on one of the buses, causing a fire. State police quickly responded and there were no injuries reported, White said.

So Dr. Oz did have some of his facts straight, when he wrote: "I'm just so thankful everyone made it out safe and sound."

A representative of "The Dr. Oz Show" was not immediately available for comment.
