Bus, 'Ride the Ducks' vehicle crash in Seattle; some hurt

Posted: Updated:
SEATTLE (AP) -

Several people have been injured and two people killed in a crash between a charter bus and a `Ride the Ducks' tour vehicle on a bridge in Seattle.

Footage shot by television news helicopters showed more than a dozen firefighters working to pull passengers from the bus. They removed several victims on stretchers, though it was not immediately clear how serious their injuries were.

The Seattle Fire Department confirmed two deaths and nine critical injuries via a post on Twitter.

Photos from the scene show extensive damage to the buses.

The SFD also had to clear around 50 people from the accident.

The crash occurred late Thursday morning on the Aurora Avenue Bridge over Lake Union.
