Dinh v Ride The Ducks
Stritmatter Trial Insider: Dinh v Ride The Ducks. An accident, its origins, and its aftermath. A production of Stritmatter Kessler Koehler Moore, and hosted by Sara Bernard. With court testimony, interviews, and archival sound, this podcast pieces together the legal and historical landscape that surrounded the fatal collision between a Ride the Ducks vehicle and a charter bus on September 24, 2015 in Seattle. It explores the months-long trial that ensued and hears from people whose lives will never be the same. But the 2015 crash was not the only duck boat accident. There have been many others across the country and world, a number of them fatal. How do duck boats — repurposed U.S. military vehicles from World War II — sustain so many major accidents and remain in the tourist business? After this and other lawsuits, will they?
