SEATTLE (Reuters) - At least two people were killed and nine critically injured on Thursday when an open-air amphibious tour bus collided with a charter bus on a Seattle bridge, the city's fire department said.

Few other details were immediately available, but the fire department said on Twitter that about 50 people were evaluated for injuries. Local TV broadcast footage showed the Ride the Ducks bus crumpled from the impact with the other bus, surrounded by rescue workers and emergency vehicles on the Aurora Bridge.
