    devils advocate: maybe he didnt *want* to pass on the right, as in, he had no choice.

    think of it,maybe what he did saved the lives of everyone one on that bus? perhaps the brakes failed, maybe he was playing angry birds (which is just as bad....i hate distracted drivers)

    then again, he may just be a twat.

    try watching again, my guess is the truck driver was not paying attention when the bus stopped.. and he swung to the inside to avoid hitting and killing every kid on the bus itself. I mean he was going faaast, there was no way he could have stopped.
    sure he almost killed 1, but it would have been worse if he killed ALL.

    It looks like the truck didnt see the bus stopped (in the middle of the road?) and avoided a collision. The bus should have pulled off the road really.

    Seems like the truck didn`t notice the bus had stopped. But why swerve and pass on the inside?

    A truck actually did that to us, only we were driving normally, and this semi came barreling down the shoulder of the road. Scariest thing in my life.

    I vote that we go back to trains for the main form of delivering merchandise.

    watch the youtube version and in the discription it says he was arrested.
    here is the exact quote -

    The driver of the semi that illegally passed a school bus and was caught on video turned himself in Tuesday night. Thank you to everyone who shared this video and helped spread the word.

    The Minnesota State Patrol is looking for the public`s help tracking down a semi that illegally passed a stopped school bus May 30, nearly hitting a young female student waiting alongside the highway.

    Cameras inside the bus captured the close call, which happened on Highway 23 near Paynesville and New London. Footage shows the semi blow past the stopped bus — lights flashing and stop arm down — and continue along the highway. The girl and bus driver were not injured.

    i guess he felt it was his fault and did the right thing(finally). having to take the interstate everyday, i hate truck drive

    wtf, second time this happened to me.

    truck drivers need more training. a book and a test is not enough. they need to make at least a year of ride-along mandatory. not many people realize just how much they have to drive in a day and simply cant take it but by the time they get there, they are already stuck in a contract.

    I watched the video a few time, i never saw the buss` lights come on in his fisheye mirror..

    i`ll bet you`re one of those asshats that just has to get in front of the truck on a busy road. you`re exit or turn is coming up fast but ya just can`t let that truck in front of ya, he might slow ya down by 40sec after all .

    I personally think ALL drivers should take the CDL class and learn to drive large rigs. Then you`ll realize they can`t frack`n stop on a dime like your prius.

    Educate yourself.
