Seattle company waiting on word if it can reopen after "Duck" crash

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (WKOW) -- Officials are deciding whether or not to let a duck boat operation reopen, nearly three months after it was involved in a deadly crash.

"Seattle Ride the Ducks" uses amphibous boats, like the one's used in Wisconsin Dells, to give guided tours of the city.

5 people died and 50 more were hurt when a duck boat crashed into a bus in September. The state suspended the company, pending an investigation.

"Sometimes terrible things happen to good people, you know, and we're just doing everything we can do and trying to go above and beyond what we've done before," said CEO Brian Tracey. "And it's not, and hopefully, this kind of thing will never happen again."

Officials will decide next week if the company will be allowed to reopen.

The NTSB is still working to determine the cause of the crash.
