roachNEW YORK — Roaches crawling out of air vents. Roaches climbing up seats and windows. Roaches on people’s coats and hats. Roaches everywhere.

It sounds like a scene from a horror movie — but is in fact what passengers say happened on a Greyhound bus journey from Atlantic City to New York on Friday.

“There’s like a thousand roaches,” passenger Dawn Alexander told CNN affiliate WABC. “And when I say infested, I mean infested. People were in the aisles literally brushing roaches off of them.”

“We thought it was one. It turned out to be a whole house full of roaches,” said a fellow passenger.

“I sat down — roaches started crawling up on our clothes, falling down from the ceiling. Everything,” said another.

    Sounds like some food and stuff was not cleaned up properly. The roaches created a few nests which breeds thousands. Then by disturbing them by all those people sitting down and walked around had caused them to scurry and they could not get away because they where inside so they went up the walls. I would bet this bus was close to the trash parked for about a week or two for repairs or whatever and did not get a cleaning. Just a theory, they have to go somewhere once there living there settled in.
