Boston school bus driver reportedly texting

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - A Boston school bus driver is off the job temporarily for allegedly texting while transporting children.

A student at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences said he saw the driver using a cellphone Tuesday morning while driving on Longwood Avenue in the medical district.

The student said the driver appeared to be using a phone as the bus crawled to a stop at a light, then continued using the phone until the light changed and the bus started moving again.

He tells the Boston Herald there were four or five students on board.

A schools spokesman said the bus was headed to the Tobin School, for children in kindergarten through eighth-grade.

The driver has been "removed from service" while the city's bus contractor investigates. No name was released.
