Photo released shows Ride the Duck vehicle right before impact

SEATTLE -- The National Transportation Safety Board has unveiled the legal docket in the September 2015 accident that killed five on Seattle’s Aurora Bridge.

That accident involved a Ride the Ducks amphibious tour vehicle and a charter bus being operated on behalf of North Seattle College.  One of the images released is from video aboard the coach, just .4 seconds before impact, showing the Duck vehicle crossing the centerline.

Five students died aboard the bus in the September 2015 accident.

The “docket” is not the cause of the accident, but a compilation of facts, reports, photos and other data.  The full video was not released. 

KING 5 News has learned the full Safety Board will hear the case at its headquarters in Washington, D.C.  At that point, the probable cause will be released.  The investigation by both state and federal investigators has focused on a broken axle and lost left front wheel on the Duck.

KING 5's Glenn Farley has the full report tonight on KING 5 News at 5 p.m.
