The Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) bus crash allegedly took place around an intersection, near the Hollywood studios as reported by the Florida Highway Patrol. Currently, the investigation of this collision is underway.
Throughout the two busses, no passengers were onboard. However, one of the drivers was taken to Celebration Health to treat minor injuries sustained during the collision. Due to the crash, the busses were both wrecked and had to be towed away.
As a consequence of the Disney bus crash, the Florida Highway Patrol closed the intersection for an estimated 30-minutes. However, traffic is back to normal today.
Cause of the Disney bus crash
Sergeant Kim Montes commented, “The incident took place at 8:30 a.m., the two busses were driving through Victoria Way and Buena Vista Drive, about two miles down the road from Disney Hollywood Studios when they collided.”
From the images captured of the incident, it appears that the non-Disney world bus t-boned the Disney world bus.
However, the progression of the investigation has been slow. The Florida Highway Patrol reported that they would be reviewing the captured video in both of the busses. Through doing this, they believe they will be able to see where the fault lay, which caused the accident.
