A woman was killed Friday when her car was rear-ended by a bus near Walt Disney World’s Epcot theme park, authorities said.
A Disney’s Magical Express bus struck the woman’s car Friday afternoon. The 63-year-old woman who had been driving the car was taken to Celebration Health in Kissimmee. She was later pronounced dead.
The bus was carrying 36 passengers. Two others were hospitalized with minor injuries.
Disney’s Magical Express is a complimentary shuttle service that transports guests between the airport and the resort. It is operated by Mears Transportation.
“We are saddened by today’s tragic accident and offer our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the driver who passed away,” Disney spokeswoman Marilyn Waters said in a statement. “In addition, we are providing support to the passengers on the bus.” Mears further stated that it was cooperating fully with the highway patrol.
