Second Disney bus crash in one week at Walt Disney World


Another Disney bush has crashed at Walt Disney World this week. The accident follows a deadly crash last Thursday that claimed the life of a nine-year-old St. Petersburg, Florida boy: Chase Brubaker.

 

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a Disney tour bus crashed into a SUV that belonged to a tourist visiting from Ohio. The report said that when the Disney tour bus crashed into the SUV it pushed the vehicle until it crashed into a van owned by Disney.


The accident occurred near the entrance of Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios.


The Disney bus driver, Frederick Casssens, 81, needed medical assistance on the scene but did not need to be transported to a hospital. The driver of the SUV, Mark Sigman from Ohio, 47, did not require medical attention. Twenty-year old Brianna Berry was identified as the Disney van’s bus driver.
