Officials at Virginia Tech say five people were hurt when scaffolding outside of Davidson Hall collapsed around 11:45 a.m. Friday.

The university's deputy chief of police, Kevin Foust, says three of the people who were hurt were taken to a local hospital, but none of the injuries are life-threatening.

The accident is under investigation.

Davidson Hall is undergoing a two-year renovation that will provide nearly 50,000 square feet of lab space and a new lecture hall.
