An out-of-control tour bus crashed into a tree in Northwest D.C. Thursday morning.

The bus was traveling downhill on Tilden Street heading into Rock Creek Park.

The driver lost control of the vehicle, sending the charter bus into the center median, where it crashed into a tree.

An ambulance was called to the scene, but there were no injuries to passengers or the driver.  The impact smashed in the vehicle's front end and cracked the driver's window.

A sign on the side of the bus read "Capitol Entertainment Services," a local charter bus company.  The company's website says that renting a 47 passenger coach bus costs $100 an hour, with a five hour minimum.
