A team from the National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash in which a charter bus collided with a tourist vehicle called a Ride the Ducks bus on a major highway bridge.

Ride the Ducks buses are able to travel on land and in water. They have been involved in other fatal crashes including one that sank in the Delaware River in Philadelphia in 2010, killing two Hungarian students.
