    2 tour buses collide

    Pulled this from the Fox News Website:

    LAKE BUENA VISTA -- Five people are injured after two buses collide near Walt Disney World's Epcot theme park.
    One of the buses is owned by Disney, and one of the buses is tipped on its side.
    According to the Florida Highway Patrol, inbound traffic to Epcot has been shut down.
    The accident happened around 2 p.m. at the toll booth near the intersection of World Center and Epcot Center drives.


    Prayer and Pixie Dust for all involved.
    P.U.S.H.-A mantra MOST will not understand.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    OOOOO! That's a mess! We've worked a single bus roll over before and that was a nightmare. I can't imagine two of them!



    You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

    Re: 2 tour buses collide

    There was no rollover at least...apparently a Disney resort bus ran into the rear of a charter bus that for some reason was stationary in the rightmost travel lane (there doesn't appear to be a breakdown lane) where the charter bus driver was outside his bus. No idea why he parked it there. There was no one else on the charter bus, but 8 people were injured on the Disney bus, with the driver being the only critical injury.

    The reports are saying the Mears bus had its hazard lights on.

    Mouse Planet seems to have a good story with video and photos.
