Hello guys I brought one question!

<The bus driver shouted in one breath before pulling out of downtown Philadelphia's Greyhound station.>


I've known phrase 'in one breath' as a meaning of 'immediately' or 'at one time'.
But I wonder how this one used in this sentence.
Does it mean the bus driver shouted immediately then got out of downtown Philadelphia?




Thanksssssssss in advance

    You haven't provided the text of what the driver shouted, but presumably he or she shouted all of the words as part of a single breath, that is, without pausing for a breath between the beginning and the end.
