Police Cite Pennsylvania School Bus Driver for Caught-on-Camera Texting While Driving

Police cited a Lehigh Valley school bus driver after she was caught on video texting while driving a bus full of students.

Fifty-four-year-old Anne McGouldrick was given a traffic citation for texting while driving a commercial vehicle on Thursday.

Bethlehem police said they were told by the Bethlehem Area School District about the Easton woman's texting. Investigators said a Liberty High School student on the bus used a cellphone to record her.

A Bethlehem School bus driver has been suspended after a video of the driver texting while driving surfaced. NBC10’s Deanna Durante has more.

Officials said the woman was driving to the school on Linden Street in Bethlehem on Oct. 28 when she began texting on her cellphone.

"That kind of behavior is completely unacceptable and our students’ safety is our top priority," said Bethlehem Area School District Superintendent Dr. Joseph Roy.

A school bus driver was suspended after officials say she was caught on video texting behind the wheel.

Dr. Roy told NBC10 McGouldrick was suspended immediately after the incident was reported to police.

It's unclear if she has an attorney who could comment on the charges.
