LAKE BUENA VISTA -- A 9-year-old Florida boy has been hit and killed by a Walt Disney World bus near Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.
Troopers said the boy was riding a bicycle with an 11-year-old girl near Fort Wilderness Trail and Big Pine Trail, when the bus hit him around 1:45 p.m. Thursday.
Officials said the boy died at the scene.
Sgt. Kim Montes from FHP said the girl was not injured and both were wearing helmets at the time.
Twenty-eight people were on board the bus, but no injuries were reported, Montes said.
Reedy Creek Fire and Rescue said it was on the scene investigating an accident. Troopers said they are conducting a traffic homicide investigation.
Disney issued the following statement Thursday afternoon:
"We wish to extend our deepest sympathy to the boy’s family over their loss. We are currently providing the necessary resources to help the family with their situation. The driver and witnesses are waiting to be interviewed.”
This is enough! There have been too many accidents at WDW in this short period of time!
It's true that the resort is huge (it's the biggest theme park complex in the world), but this doesn't mean that they should allow all these accidents to happen!
