A joyride in a stolen school bus came to a surprising end in Bangor, Maine last week.

John St. Germain was in the passenger seat of his friend's car when he saw a bus driving dangerously in front of them. In cell phone video, it can be seen swerving, hitting the sidewalk and signs.

"At first it was comical, because we both thought it was a new driver - like someone being taught how to drive a bus," said St. Germain.

And it was a new driver - a very young one.

"I kind of saw his body structure and I was like, 'Oh my gosh - I think that's a kid," said St. Germain. "That's when it got scary."
