BOSTON (AP) – A 29-year-old woman has died after the scooter she was driving was struck by an amphibious sightseeing vehicle in downtown Boston.
The crash happened around 11:30 a.m. Saturday right near public park Boston Common.
A city police department spokeswoman said the woman and her male passenger were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital, where the woman died from her injuries. The passenger suffered non-life threatening injuries.
The spokeswoman says there were about 30 passengers on the vessel, known as a duck boat, when the crash happened. There were no other injuries.
A Boston Duck Tours spokesman didn’t immediately return a message seeking comment. A person who answered the company’s phone declined to comment.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
No further details were immediately available.
