1 killed, 1 hurt in duck tour boat crash in downtown Boston

A woman was killed after being struck by a duck tour boat in downtown Boston Saturday morning.

Police said a duck boat with 30 people onboard struck the woman, who was riding a motorized scooter, at the intersection of Charles Street and Beacon Street. The scooter then became stuck underneath the duck boat.

"It’s an unfortunate accident, it appears both vehicles were on Charles Street on their way up towards the State House on Beacon," Commissioner William Evans said.

Both people on the scooter were taken to Mass General Hospital. The driver, a woman in her 20s, was pronounced dead. Her boyfriend, who was her passenger, is expected to be OK. Both of them were wearing helmets.

The crash is under investigation and police said it has not been ruled a homicide yet.

The identities of both victims have not been released.
