There was a close call Wednesday afternoon for a Granbury ISD school bus carrying four elementary students.

District spokesman Jeff Meador said the bus was traveling on Acton Highway, a two-lane road, when a pickup truck attempted to pass it and hit an oncoming car head-on at the Tom Cox Road intersection.

Meador said the bus was not hit and there was no damage to the district's vehicle. The bus driver and students were unhurt, and a second bus was used to take everyone home while the accident investigation continued.

A CareFlite medical helicopter was employed to take at least one person in the other vehicles to a hospital for treatment.
