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.

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.
