WDW Monorail Accident Reported

Update: July 2009 Fatal Monorail Accident information story

There is a report of an accident on the Walt Disney World Monorail system on Saturday. Sounds like the ‘tugger’, a gas powered service vehicle, ran into monorail yellow. The tugger was approaching to service the stalled monorail but collided with it instead causing damage to the nose cone of Yellow and its front window to pop out. No injuries to anyone on the monorail have been reported, but it sounds like the tender driver did go to the hospital with injuries. This appears to have been confirmed by a cast member as well.

That said I can’t find any main stream media news coverage of it. This is one of the real differences between Orlando and Anaheim. Any accident that happens at the Disneyland Resort gets news coverage with helicopters overhead. In Orlando, news of the incident rarely even leaves the property.
