Woman Suffers Minor Injuries After Being Hit By Duck Boat In Boston

A pedestrian was injured after being struck by a duck boat in Boston.

Boston police spokesman Stephen McNulty says the crash happened around 11:30 a.m. Sunday in the city's Back Bay neighborhood.

Police say the victim was crossing contrary to the walk signal when she was hit by the amphibious sightseeing vessel at the corner of Newbury and Clarendon streets. It's not clear whether passengers were aboard the vehicle.

The victim was taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

The operator of the duck boat, Boston Duck Tours, said in a statement they were grateful nobody was seriously injured.

It's the second crash in Boston involving a duck boat in three months. Twenty-eight-year-old Allison Warmuth was riding a scooter when she was struck and killed April 30 near Boston Common.
