Emergency crews responded to the crash of Metro Transit bus Friday morning in the Uptown area of Minneapolis, WCCO-TV reports.

The crash was in the vicinity of West Lake Street and West Calhoun Parkway.

A number of first responders were called to the scene. The Star Tribune says six passengers and the driver were aboard the bus at the time of the crash, and all suffered minor injuries.

A number of the passengers were transported to the Hennepin County Medical Center, the station says. The passengers who didn't go the hospital were picked up by another Metro Transit bus.
