[B]I know last visit I thought the BUS DRIVERS were NUTS!!![/B]:blink:
Two Walt Disney World buses crashed this afternoon in front of the Contemporary Resort on Disney property, injuring 12 people, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The rear-end crash happened about 2:40 p.m. when one southbound bus stopped to merge as the World Drive narrowed from three to two lanes, said Sgt. Kim Miller, an FHP spokeswoman. The second bus did not stop in time.
Fifty people were on both buses. A dozen were taken to area hospitals. Miller described their injuries as minor. Preliminary reports indicate the buses were ferrying guests from the theme parks to hotels.
The accident comes 11 days after monorail pilot Austin Wuennenberg died when another train accidentally backed into his.
A Disney spoksewoman, Andrea Finger, said the company is working with law enforcement to ensure the “well-being of those involved.”
“There’s nothing more important than the safety of our guests and cast members,” Finger said.
