ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Riders on a New York City-bound bus from New Jersey were evacuated and moved to a new bus after an apparent invasion of cockroaches.
A passenger on a Manhattan-bound bus from Atlantic City tells WABC-TV that roaches started coming out of the vents inside the bus just 15 minutes into their Friday afternoon journey.
The passenger reports roaches could be seen crawling on seats, windows, side panels and even on people.
An assignment editor at WABC says people could be heard screaming and yelling about roaches in their hair and on their backs while the person was on the phone with the station.
Greyhound says the 48 passengers on board had been moved to the new bus.
The company says the bus the passengers had been riding is being examined to determine the origin of the bugs.
