A crash between an amphibious vehicle and a charter bus has left four people dead and dozens injured in Seattle. The collision happened around 11:15 a.m. Thursday on the Aurora Bridge in the city. A total of four vehicles were involved in the accident. Ninety firefighters, 11 engines and eight paramedic units were dispatched to the scene, according to Seattle Fire Chief Harold Scoggins in a press conference.
