A Megabus in Chicago.

(State College) -- A man has been found dead in the bathroom of a Megabus headed from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh, and the driver says he had a needle stuck in his arm.

The bus made a stop in State College on Thursday afternoon.

The bus driver says he opened the bathroom door and the 54-year-old Philadelphia man "fell out" with the needle in his arm. The driver says the man seemed fine when he boarded.

Patton Township Sgt. Shawn Albright says foul play isn't suspected.

Police say the man was dead when they arrived. They won't identify him until his family is notified.

Megabus is a subsidiary of Paramus, New Jersey-based Coach USA.

It operates express intercity bus service with fares sometimes as low as $1. It hasn't responded to requests for comment.
