ACCIDENT

Disaster at Disney World

A 21-year-old Walt Disney World employee was killed on Sunday when two of the park's futuristic, elevated monorail trains collided. The crash occurred near the entrance to the Magic Kingdom, at around 2:00 a.m. No tourists were seriously hurt, though six were on the train that crashed. Disney World has closed the monorail system—normally used to carry tourists between parks and resorts--for the day but the park is otherwise operating normally. The cause of the crash, the first fatal accident in the monorail's decades-long history, is still being investigated.
