From King5:

Two people were killed and nine were in critical condition after a charter bus and a Ride The Ducks tour vehicle collided on the Aurora Bridge in Seattle Thursday morning.

Twelve people were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The Seattle Fire Department said most of the serious injuries were passengers on the bus.

A pickup truck and an SUV were also involved.

The charter bus was full of students and staff from North Seattle College. The charter bus is owned by Bellair Charters based in Ferndale.

It happened at approximately 11:15 a.m. Both directions are closed at the scene and will likely stay that way for several hours.

At least 50 people have been evaluated at the scene.

The force was so powerful, a huge gash was ripped in the side of the bus.
