As two buses of North Seattle College students and staff embarked on a college trip, a ‘Ride the Ducks’ amphibious tourbus and one of the school’s charter buses collided head-on on the Aurora Bridge on Sept 24. Witnesses say the amphibious ‘Ride the Ducks’ vehicle “swerved” and crashed into the Bellair charter bus. The front left tire was apparently leaking red fluid.

At least 10 patients were triaged on the scene. Forty-four injured were taken to Harborview Medical Center, UW Medical Center, Northwest Hospital & Medical Center and other area facilities.Four people died.

Aurora Avenue will be closed between 39th and Denny.
