WESH doesn’t have very much information, other than it was a Disney bus involved and it was “near” Fort Wilderness on Big Pine Road. However, my maps tell me Big Pine Road is inside Fort Wilderness and Channel 13 News (cable only?) is reporting that it occured near Ft. Wilderness Trail and Big Pine Road… There’s a big difference between riding bikes outside your resort and it happening inside the resort. Sadly, it looks like Big Pine Road is one of the main internal roads, which is why the bus was on that road in the first place.
I don’t know what happened and I’m not going to cast blame.
This is just a horrible accident.
But it’s not the first in the last seven days. There was a crash involving a Mears bus and a Disney bus on the entrance ramp into Epcot. The Mears bus was stopped, not sure if it was out of the lane of traffic, and the Disney bus rear ended the Mears bus sending 7 to the hospital, including the Disney driver, who was in critical condition. That driver was ticketed by FHP and is now on leave from Disney.
