Illinois School Bus Driver Caught Driving Through Floodwater

A school bus driver for Monmouth-Roseville School District in Illinois was caught in a Facebook video driving a school bus through floodwater, reported the Charlotte Observer.

The video shows the water almost up to the windows on the bus, just below the bottom of the stop sign.

The video shows the bus proceeding through high, standing water at the intersection of 11th Street and 11th Avenue in Monmouth, Illinois.

According to the article, there were students on the bus, and they were headed to Lincoln Elementary School. The superintendent reportedly said the behavior was unacceptable and that the driver did not follow his training.

No students were injured and no floodwater entered the bus. The incident is being handled through the district’s policy, the article said.
