SEATTLE (AP) - Police say a Ride the Ducks amphibious vehicle carrying passengers crashed into the back of a car in downtown Seattle.

KCPQ-TV reports (https://goo.gl/LbsmTX ) that no injuries were reported during the Thursday afternoon incident.

Police say the driver of the duck boat was cited.

It was the second minor crash of a tour vehicle in the past three months.

A different type of repurposed military vehicle used by the tour company was involved in a September crash that killed five international college students and injured dozens of others.

The company was allowed to resume some tours in January after altering their routes and adding a second guide on the tours. They also admitted to 463 safety violations and agreed to pay $222,000 in penalties to settle a Washington state complaint.
