SEATTLE, Washington — Four people were killed and at least nine were critically injured when a tour bus and a duck boat tourist vehicle collided Thursday morning in Seattle, the city’s fire department tweeted.

“All patients extricated,” the Seattle Fire Department said.

The department said that about 50 people had been evaluated for injuries after the crash.

A nursing supervisor at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle said that hospital alone is expecting 25 patients with unknown injuries.

Q13 Fox reports that two other cars were also involved in the crash.

All north and southbound lanes of the Aurora bridge were closed indefinitely as emergency officials worked the scene.

At least 90 emergency responders were called to the scene.

Tourists on-board the ‘Ride the Ducks’ vehicle could been seen crawling out of the wreckage, and a triage center was set up near the scene.

It’s unclear what may have caused the crash.
