PHOENIX — Passengers of a Greyhound bus bound from Phoenix to Dallas took matters into their own hands after witnessing the driver falling asleep during the trip, according to multiple reports.

The company, while not providing details, did confirm the incident and said the driver had been removed from service.

Passenger Jasmine McClellan said she recorded video of the incident and described it as "one of the worst experiences I’ve dealt with."

"By morning, we politely asked her to pull over around four or more times," McClellan told The Arizona Republic. "We were finally able to get the driver to pull over in the middle of New Mexico but not without her almost tipping the bus over with how reckless she was being."

McClellan said U.S. Border Patrol was called to escort the bus to the closest gas station, where the driver was replaced. A Border Patrol agent stayed on the bus to keep an eye on the driver along the way, McClellan said.

Another passenger on the bus, Philip Hurd, told CBS11 in Dallas on Thursday that people started to worry after the bus began swerving and they noticed the driver trying to stay awake.

"We would go over the white line and everybody would be like, 'Wake up,' and she had tweezers she was poking herself with," Hurd told the television station. "It got to the point where we had to raise our voice, 'Pull over, we have children on this bus, pull over.'"

Passengers told CBS11 they were escorted to a safe location by U.S. Border Patrol agents and a new driver was assigned.
