Just after 9 p.m. tonight reports came over the newswire of a scaffolding accident on East 8th Street and Broadway. This is a photo of the scene, where two taxis are trapped under the scaffolding. Reportedly there were six victims being transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

No word on the extent of damages to what looks like a Gap store.

Update: Jaya Harrover Saxena was at the scene after the crash and tells us a firefighter told her, "I wasn't there when it happened, but the cabs crashed into each other and went into the construction." She adds that cabs were a regular cab and a Jeep cab—the regular seemed crushed—and that it did look like the scaffolding damaged the store.
