GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — Guilford County Schools is reviewing video shared on social media showing a bus driver crossing the center line multiple times. The video shows the bus drift into the wrong lane on Young’s Mill Road Wednesday morning. The school system confirmed Thursday that bus 277 does belong to Guilford County Schools. Chris Pegram was riding with his boss when he pulled out his phone to record the bus. “When you have a school bus full of children, that’s a very serious thing and that should be taken seriously,” Pegram said. “It was on the left-hand side of the road, the right-hand side, the middle. It was all over the place.” A spokesperson said that employees saw the video posted to social media, but they had not taken any formal complaints. The spokesperson also said that they couldn’t release any more information because it is a personnel issue but added that the district is taking appropriate action. Pegram said that he saw several students inside, and says he hopes the driver will face some consequences to keep students safe. “Their safety should be number one. It should not be a distraction of what’s going on in the bus,” Pegram said. The district did not say if any students were on board and declined to answer questions on camera.
