A Wellington mother and daughter say they caught a school bus driver texting and driving on Southern Boulevard near Forest Hill.

Deana Courtney says she saw the bus driver texting last week. The driver was captured in a cell phone picture.  It is unclear if what the driver is holding in the picture is a cell phone, but Courtney says she is sure.

A spokesman for the Palm Beach County School District, released this statement:

"The District appreciates the public bringing this to our attention. Per State law and district policy, bus drivers are not to text and/or use any mobile devices while driving a school bus. The District will investigate this and if proven true necessary disciplinary actions will be to taken."

The consequence for violating the policy is automatic discipline.
