A Dallas-area school bus driver has been put on administrative leave after allegedly going the wrong way on a service road to avoid heavy traffic Monday.

KRLD Radio reports Irving school officials will consider whether the driver should be fired.

Irving Independent School District spokesman Pat Lamb says one special needs student was on the school bus Monday morning.

Authorities believe the bus driver deliberately headed the wrong way to avoid a wreck that had backed up traffic.

Lamb said the bus was bound for John R. Good Elementary School.
