LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — A woman is dead following a bus crash near Walt Disney World's Epcot theme park.
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that a Disney's Magical Express bus rear-ended a car Friday afternoon. Witnesses said the car stopped in the middle of the road, and the bus was unable to brake.
According to an FHP report, the 63-year-old woman who had been driving the car was taken to Celebration Health in Kissimmee. She was later pronounced dead. FHP wasn't immediately naming the victim.
The bus was carrying 36 passengers. FHP says two were hospitalized with minor injuries.
No charges were immediately filed.
Disney's Magical Express is a complimentary shuttle service that transports guests between the airport and the resort. It is operated by Mears Transportation.
An after-hours message left with Walt Disney World wasn't immediately returned.
Attempts to reach Mears Transportation were unsuccessful.
