Robert Krueger of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, was walking alone through the parking lot of Port Orleans resort on Walt Disney World property when he stepped into the vehicles path just before 6 p.m. Sunday evening. Mr. Krueger was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he later died.
Witnesses reported that the bus had the right of way, and that Mr. Krueger was not on a crosswalk. Although the incident is currently under investigation, it does not appear that the driver, Rosemary Kincaid, will be charged.
Disney spokesperson Meg Crofton offered a brief statement regarding the accident: “”We offer our deepest condolences to the guests’ family and loved ones. We are doing all we can for them during this difficult time.”
The bus was carrying passengers at the time of the accident, but no other injuries were reported.
