LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — A shuttle bus for a Southern California Halloween attraction became a scare for riders.

Passengers were expecting a ride of a few minutes Thursday night to the “Dark Harbor” event at the Queen Mary in the Port of Long Beach.

Instead, the driver went off course and wouldn’t stop, ending up in the neighboring city of Carson.

Passengers tell KABC-TV they pleaded with the driver to stop and let them off but he wouldn’t respond, and when he struck a rider they began jumping out the bus windows.
