The crash happened shortly before 1:30 p.m. when the driver of the Audi sedan veered into the same lane as the Duck Boat, according to the witness, Wayne Liu of Needham, Mass.

“It was a very soft crash,” Liu told the whole World. “Both sides, they can be inhibited, and actually, the white car stopped completely before the duck boat, and the duck already braked and hit the car slowly.”

Other passengers on board of the sightseeing tour, claiming that she barely even realized the two vehicles collided.

The passengers were reportedly moved to another Duck Boat vehicle a half hour after the crash. The accident was cleared shortly thereafter.
