FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. — Winston-Salem/Forsyth County school officials said they’re investigating after a school bus driver was apparently captured on video running a red light.

“We appreciate it coming to our attention and we will look into it,” said Theo Helm, a spokesman for the school district. “Our transportation staff will look into and take appropriate action.”

The video was posted to YouTube Monday by someone with the username Drweird13.

In the description, the user said the video was shot at 7:46 a.m. Monday at the intersection of Academy Street and Peters Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem.

Helm said transportation officials will use GPS to confirm the location and if any students were on the bus at the time.

Judging by the video, the unidentified driver appears to be the only one on the bus, which appears to be Forsyth County Schools bus number 34.

Helm said if anyone ever sees school personnel violating traffic laws, they should contact the school system immediately.
