A tour bus with 44 passengers crashed into scaffolding on the side of a building in Midtown this morning.

The accident happened at West 41st Street and 10th Avenue around 8:30 a.m. Thursday morning. Passengers were rescued by the FDNY after they cleared the debris, some out the bus windows and some out of the door.

There are no reports of any serious injuries, but there were a few passengers that exited the bus reportedly holding their heads and have been taken to the hospital.

The cause of the crash is unknown at the time, but witnesses claim they saw the bus hit a pothole and loose control.
