(Newser) – A Connecticut school bus driver faces charges that she endangered the kids on her bus by texting while driving. A lot. Police say Evelyn Guzman, 47, sent and received 1,068 texts in about a month while working, the CT Post reports. Bizarrely, police got the tip to look into Guzman because of a separate offense in which her daughter—who worked as a monitor on the vehicle—allegedly beat a 9-year-old autistic girl on the bus. Video footage reviewed for the assault case showed Guzman texting while driving and led to the investigation.
