Two monorail trains smashed into each other at Walt Disney World in Orlando early Sunday morning, killing one conductor and injuring the other.
A Walt Disney World spokesman said the crash happened at about 2 a.m. Sunday on the monorail’s last run of the day. The trains were carrying only five passengers and two employees, none of whom were hurt.
“Two trains collided at the ticket and transportation center. One driver on one train is dead and the other driver from the second train was taken to the hospital.
The crash on the Epcot line in the Magic Kingdom section of the theme park marked the first monorail death there in its 38 years of running.
According to Disney, the theme park runs 12 monorail trains, each with 6 cars traveling the 14.7 miles of elevated rail.
On a typical day, more than 150,000 guests ride the monorail.
