Teen takes the wheel when school bus driver collapses

    Someone give this girl a car insurance discount.

    Graceann Rumer took the school bus Tuesday to Calvary Christian Academy in Somerton. The 17-year-old and her classmates were on the way home when the driver slumped over with his foot blocking the brake pedal.
    And as she explains to NBC10, Rumer, a new driver, rushed to the front of the bus and grabbed the wheel. She steered the bus away from traffic and put it in park to stop it.

    The bus driver died of an apparent heart attack, but none of the students were injured.
