Four killed when duck boat and tour bus crash in Seattle.

A Ride the Ducks tour vehicle and a charter bus collided on a bridge in Seattle today, killing at least four people and critically injuring another nine, according to the Seattle Fire Department. The Fire Department told reporters that four vehicles were involved in the crash on the Aurora Bridge and a total of 50 patients were evaluated for injuries. — Alexis Smith (@AlexisKIRO7) September 24, 2015 Duck tour buses, which can travel on land and water, have previously been involved in a number of crashes. In 2010, one of the company’s tour buses crashed into a barge in the Delaware River in Philadelphia, killing two tourists and sending nearly 40 people overboard.

The family of the dead woman, Elizabeth Karnicki, who was visiting from Texas, sued the operator of the tour for the accident over the vehicle’s “huge blind spots,” which apparently prevented the driver from seeing her, according to CBS3 Philadelphia.
