State regulators suspend operations of ‘Ride the Ducks’ tour company
SEATTLE (AP) — Washington state regulators have suspended the operations of a Seattle tour company after one of its amphibious vehicles was involved in a crash last week that killed five people and injured dozens. The Utilities and Transportation Commission met in an emergency session Monday to keep the converted military vehicles off the streets pending inspections and a review of driver records. The company, Ride the Ducks of Seattle, says it agrees with the action.
