A crash of two Disney monorails back in July 2009, which killed a 21-year old monorail pilot Austin Wuennenberg, has been settled.
The mother of the driver, Christine Wuennenberg, filed a suit last year and has dismissed the suit with no eligibility to re-file, but the rest of this case has been sealed.
She claimed Disney was negligent and that the supervisor wasn’t doing his duty since he was allowed to be away while on command using a radio taking a dinner break.
A new position has been created since the incident that monitors all monorail movements.
Disney was also fined $35,000 by Occupational Safety and Health Administration for safety violations. The National Transportation Safety Board also did an investigation but hasn’t released it’s report.
