Four international students at North Seattle College were killed on Thursday in a collision between a charter bus and an amphibious "Ride the Ducks" tour vehicle that left dozens of others injured, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported. The college said the bus was carrying about 45 students and employees from its international programs office to a new student orientation event at the Seattle Mariners' stadium, Safeco Field.
The college said several students remained in critical condition on Thursday evening, and other students and an employee sustained serious injuries. The crash occurred on Seattle's Aurora Bridge.
