According to a radio report people on the Duck said the driver was describing the sights on either side of the bridge when the Duck suddenly swerved and then there was the collision.

Just got back from my marina on the Fremont cut. My slip neighbor is a work-boat captain who comes in and tells me he heard on his VHF that the Duck boat lost a wheel, at the moment they speculate a broken axle. The Duck swerved as a result and collided with the bus.

It's 20:01 and the bridge is still closed.
