(Newser) – Talk about nasty: A bus full of Greyhound travelers suddenly found roaches dropping from the ceiling and scurrying up their clothes yesterday, CNN reports. "There's like a thousand roaches," said a passenger on the ill-fated trip. "And when I say infested, I mean infested. People were in the aisles literally brushing roaches off of them." When panicked passengers told the driver about 15 minutes after leaving Atlantic City, he pulled over and everyone got off, ABC 7 reports.

Greyhound brought in another bus to complete the trip to New York City, and everyone was granted a full refund, according to company rep. "We are investigating how they got there—in bags or from the bus," she said. Luckily none of the roaches seemed to hitch a ride on the second bus to Manhattan.
