(FREEPRESS) — DES MOINES, Iowa — An Iowa school bus driver who used her cellphone while transporting students on the interstate has been fired, thanks in part to a student who quietly photographed the incident.

Nationally, it’s one of several cases this year of students photographing their school bus drivers using cellphones as they’re driving.

The Iowa case, which was made public recently, involves an incident that happened last May.

Bus driver Tabitha Jones, 29, of North Liberty was driving students on Interstate 380 to Iowa City West High School on May 14 when she allegedly began using her cellphone.
