A bus carrying dozens of passengers crashed into a scaffolding in Manhattan during the Thursday morning rush.

The accident involving a Optimum Ride bus happened around 8 a.m. at 41st Street and Tenth Avenue in Hells Kitchen.

Officials say 44 passengers, mostly from Canada, were on board when the accident occurred.

A spokesperson from the bus company says the driver hit a pothole then lost control.

Firefighters could be seen helping the passengers exit the bus through emergency windows.

One person suffered minor injuries.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
