Tragedy was narrowly averted south of Davis on July 30, 1973. A church bus, occupied by the driver and 34 children, was washed off a road in the Arbuckle Mountains by rushing flood waters. Four of the children jumped from the bus and were quickly washed downstream. The children then became trapped in trees and were later rescued. The driver and the other children remained in the bus and were also rescued safely.
