Cockroaches on a Bus!

(This story sounds like it could be an urban legend in the making - except that it appears to be true!)

This past Friday forty-eight unsuspecting souls boarded a Greyhound Bus in Atlantic City, New Jersey, for a short ride into New York City.  The ride, unfortunately for the passengers, was not short enough.  Fifteen minutes into their trip cockroaches began swarming through the interior of the bus.  The frantic cries for help from the passengers caused the driver to pull over to the side of the highway and free his terrified riders.  He then called for a new, vermin-free bus.

Some reports said that the cockroaches dropped into the bus from the ceiling, while others speculated that they may have been brought on board by a passenger in some sort of container and deliberately released as an act of urban terrorism.

Regardless of the origin of the swarm, passengers were duly terrorized.    Greyhound reportedly gave refunds to everyone on the bus.  No word yet on whether the company will spring for PTSD counseling!
