WABASHA COUNTY, MN (NBC News) – Alarming video shows the moment a Minnesota fourth grader nearly gets hit by a driver who failed to stop for a school bus.  

The video from January shows Zumbrota-Mazeppa Elementary School student Ambriel Johnson crossing the road as a driver swerves, nearly hitting her.  

You can see the school bus with its stop-arm extended and the red lights flashing. 

The video was released by the Minnesota State Patrol. 

The Wabasha County Sheriff said they were able to find the 20-year-old driver later and he admitted it was him.  

He pleaded guilty to a gross misdemeanor of failing to stop at a school bus stop-arm.
