SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —WESH 2 News has obtained video showing a Seminole County school bus driver texting while driving.
Winter Springs High School is one of three stops on the driver’s route. He also transports elementary and middle school students. This wasn’t the first time he had been caught texting behind the wheel.
