NEW YORK (AP) — The Fire Department says 17 people suffered minor injuries when scaffolding collapsed and hit a city bus in Harlem.

The FDNY said one person refused medical attention and the others are being treated after the accident Tuesday morning.

Fire officials say the injured may be a combination of passengers, bystanders and workers.

The bus was headed west on 125th Street at about 9:30 a.m. when it stopped in front of the building with the scaffolding. Witnesses say the structure suddenly collapsed onto the back of the bus.
