    Default Disney Bus Accident at Epcot

    I just read about an accident involving two Disney busses. It seems that there are no serious injuries, but still, not a good day for those drivers, or the passengers.

    More details on various news sites, including: https://www.local10.com/theme-parks/...crash-at-epcot

    At the time I'm reading the report, 15 were sent to the hospital for "non emergency" treatment. I wonder if those 15 were standing? I've always thought standing was a bad idea in a moving vehicle. I realize these incidents are rare, but every time I'm on a crowded bus, I wonder what would happen to the standers if there were a mishap.

    I too have had those thoughts, but also for the others nearby. When people fall they land on something or someone...

    You need someone to treat your injuries when you land.

    The wonderful thing about Tiggers Is Tiggers are wonderful things. Their tops are made out of rubber. Their bottoms are made out of springs.
