PAYNESVILLE, MN (KARE/MN Department of Public Safety/CNN) - Video captured a semi-truck flying around a stopped school bus waiting for students to board.

The driver of the semi-truck could face charges after he sped past the bus in Paynesville, MN.

School bus driver Mike Egerman was stopped on a rural highway to pick up seventh-grader Alexis Schwartz.

The semi-trailer went around the bus' lowered arm and flashing lights, driving on the highway's shoulder and right toward Alexis.

"He came here and wouldn't stop so I just backed up a little," Alexis said.

"As the semi went by there was nothing but dust and I thought she was dead. All the sudden her little face appeared," Egerman said.

But the semi-truck was already gone. Its driver never stopped.

Several people watched the whole thing happen and called police, but no one saw the semi-trailer's license plate.

"It's unbelievable he didn't stop," Egerman said.

"I'm lucky I survived," Alexis said.

Police said the driver has since contacted them about the incident.
