District blames driver for scary school bus situation

BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - The Palm Beach County school district Monday says driver error is to blame for a scary situation involving a Spanish River Community High School bus.

Back in August, cameras captured panicked students when the brakes appeared to fail on the bus' route in the afternoon. The video shows the 40 foot long school bus zooming down the wrong way along a Boca Raton street.

The district says the driver hit the gas and brake pedals at the same time-causing the lock-up.

The driver, we're told, was given more training to prevent this from happening again.
