Really bad one this!!

Kicking up a stink

Ohio, November 9, 2006 (UNI)
A US family is suing Greyhound after the contents of a bus toilet were dumped through their open car sunroof.

Robert and Angela Stokes and their three children, aged nine, ten and 22, were covered with faeces, urine and toilet paper, reports the Toledo Blade.

The family, from Ottawa County, Ohio, were returning from a Mother's Day meal out at a Toledo restaurant when it happened.

They were following a Greyhound bus on an interstate highway when the contents of the bus's sanitary tank were suddenly dumped on their 4x4 vehicle.

The waste went through the open windows and sunroof of their Ford Explorer, drenching all five family members.

"My client was driving in heavy traffic. They had nowhere to go. What can you do?'' said Robert Bryce, an attorney for the family.

Despite being covered with waste, Mr. Stokes followed the bus to obtain its identification information and registration number.

The Stokes are seeking more than 150,000 damages from Greyhound for damage to the vehicle and their clothing, plus medical treatment and testing for infectious diseases.

Mr. Bryce said the Stokes' vehicle was declared a total loss by their insurance company because the stench and filth couldn't be removed, even though the interior was steam-cleaned several times.

Greyhound declined to comment.
