Traffic headed away from downtown Macon on Gray Highway was blocked by a school bus crash Friday.

Just before 8 a.m., the Houston County school bus was hit near the intersection of Second Street and Clinton Road, according to 911 dispatchers.

"There were two students on the bus and no injuries," said Beth McLaughlin, the Houston County Board of Education's director of community & school affairs.

It appears the bus, which was taking the children to school, was broadsided by a small, red, two-door hatchback.

Traffic headed into Macon on Gray Highway also was slow but moving, according to a witness.
