    Part of building collapses onto school bus in Philadelphia, no one hurt [PHOTOS]

    No one was hurt when part of a building undergoing demolition collapsed onto a school bus in Philadelphia this morning.

    In what appeared to be an accident, the demolition crew knocked part of the brick building into Race St. The brick wall then fell into a tree and a light pole, which collapsed onto the bus, shattering several windows.

    The bus driver, who declined to give his name, said he had just dropped off children at the National Constitution Center, less than a block away from the accident.

    Demolition on the Old City building had been going on for weeks.
