HAWICK, Minn. (AP) - A semi driver who narrowly missed a girl getting on a school bus in central Minnesota has been charged with two misdemeanors.
Sixth-grader Alexis Schwartz says she felt the wind and dirt as the semi whizzed by on the right side of the bus in Kandiyohi County May 30. She says her heart was pounding and her hands were shaking because the semi was so close to her.
The school bus lights were flashing and its stop arm was extended when the semi blew by on Highway 23 between New London and Paynesville. The semi driver, Allen Morris, has been charged with two misdemeanors for ignoring the bus' lights and stop arm. Morris came forward after video of the incident was posted online.
The misdemeanors each carry a possible year in jail, a $3,000 fine, or both.

The Sherburne County Attorney’s Office completed a review of facts Thursday in the incident involving the exchange of gunfire between a Litchfield man and a Benton County Deputy.
Benton County Chief Deputy Troy Heck says the Attorney’s office determined Deputy Reese was justified in the use of deadly force per Minnesota Statute 609.066 as he was protecting himself from eminent death or great bodily harm.
The Deputy and 43-year-old Christopher Knyphausen exchanged in gunfire during the evening hours of July 31 near Airway Storage. The incident stemmed after Knyphausen called the Benton County Sheriff’s office and said he was going to fire shots at a St. Cloud area storage facility.
