SEATTLE — Two more lawsuits have been filed against a Seattle tour company involved in a deadly crash in September.
KING-TV reported that Yuta Masumoto and Mazda Hutapea filed lawsuits this week against Ride the Ducks in King County Superior Court.
A crash Sept. 24 killed five international college students when a repurposed military “duck boat” swerved into an oncoming charter bus on the Aurora Bridge, a six-lane span with no median barrier.
Masumoto broke his pelvis, hip, leg, had a lacerated spleen and other injuries. He was released from a care facility Monday.
Hutapea broke three ribs, her pelvis, and tailbone.
Both students say in their suits damage amounts will be proven in trial and that the duck boat should never have been on the bridge.
A message left with Ride the Ducks Seattle wasn’t immediately returned.
