This morning around 11:15, a Ride the Ducks vehicle crashed into a charter bus carrying 45 North Seattle College staff and students on the Aurora Bridge. Lieutenant Sue Stangl from Seattle Fire has confirmed four people were killed and twelve were in critical condition.  Many of the most critical were rushed to Harborview.

SDOT says given the nature of the crash, traffic will be impacted on the bridge (and throughout the city) through the evening.

Ride The Ducks announced it was suspending operations for the rest of the day. It’s not clear what caused the accident, although an eyewitness told King 5 news he saw what appeared to be a wheel pop off of the Duck vehicle, right before the horrific crash.
