Disney World Monorail Crash Kills Driver


A monorail train at Walt Disney World crashed into the back of another train early Sunday, killing one driver, according to an amusement park spokesman and a witness interviewed by CNN.

Here’s amateur video of the scene just after the accident, shot from the passenger platform at the Ticket and Transportation Center.

Update: Here’s the best speculation I’ve seen explaining how it could have happened, from someone who claims to be a former monorail employee.
