Greyhound bus roaches: Passengers on a Greyhound bus reportedly had to fend off an infestation of roaches before the vehicle was forced to stop.
A Greyhound bus was forced to stop in New Jersey on Friday after a large number of cockroaches were discovered, according to reports.
The bus, which was traveling from Atlantic City to New York, had to pull over in Port Republic, N.J., when passengers said they found an infestation of roaches that was so bad “people were shrieking and shaking roaches off,” said passenger Tracy Harmon, according to NBC News.
“All of a sudden the roaches came out of nowhere, they were on the floor, they were falling form the ceiling,” another passenger, Andy Rodriguez, told the network, elaborating on the incident.
The station reported that mothers were shielding their children from the roaches. “It was terrible,” Harmon added.
ABC reported that the roaches were crawling on windows, seats, side panels, and on vents. The station said that people were yelling about roaches in their hair and on their backs.
A spokesperson with the bus line said that the nearly 50 passengers on board got full refunds.
“Once the driver became aware of the situation, the driver followed procedures by pulling the bus over to a safe location and notifying our dispatch office,” Greyhound said in a statement, according to MyFoxNY.com.
Greyhound immediately sent another bus to pick up the passengers, who were then delivered to New York, according to Fox.
