NEW YORK -- You’ve heard of snakes on a plane, but roaches on a bus?
Passengers on a Greyhound bus headed to New York City on Friday may have wished for deadly vipers to slither up the aisles, as they did in the 2006 movie "Snakes on a Plane," instead of the bugs that began crawling over them shortly after they had left Atlantic City, N.J.
The creepy stowaways began making their appearance about 15 minutes into the trip, forcing the driver to pull over as shrieking passengers tried to brush the bugs away. Another bug-free bus was dispatched to pick up the passengers and take them on to New York City.
“When I say infested, I mean infested,” Dejuana Alexander told WABC news as the passengers disembarked at the end of the trip. Alexander said she was seated in the back of the bus when she noticed passengers seated up front leaping from their seats.
