(KMOV.com) – A Greyhound bus en-route from St. Louis to Las Vegas somehow ended up in the middle of nowhere on a road for ATVs Friday.

40 passengers were on board the bus that left St. Louis and was supposed to go to Las Vegas. Somehow, the bus ended up on a road meant for ATVs outside Richfield, Utah. For an unexplained reason, the driver took the bus down a rocky dirt road.

“The people on the bus were screaming, we were going around cliffs, and she just get kept on driving until it got stuck,” said passenger and University City resident Quentin.

Passengers told News 4 the driver told them to get out and push when the bus became stuck in the mud.

“She asked us to get out and push the bus, she asked over and over again,” said Quentin. “We went 17 miles on an ATV trail. 17 miles on an ATV trail, a dirt bike trail on a bus, a bunch of trees hit the bus, knocking the mirror out.”

A tow truck came to help dig the bus out, but it got stuck. Eventually, crews were able to get the bus free.

“We were in the sun for like five hours while the bus was stuck. It was like 100 degrees inside the bus, it was terrible,” said Quentin.

Greyhound later released a statement, saying:

“This was not the driver's normal route  and got a bit turned around. They ended up on the dirt road when attempting to get back on the correct route.”
