    Mickey & Friends parking tram accident today...(5/2/08)

    Did anyone hear about it or witness it?

    Forgive me if this was already discussed....

    A friend and I got to the parks at about 12:30 this afternoon and everyone who parked in Mickey & Friends were told the trams were closed and that the only way to get to the parks was to walk.
    I was curious so we stuck around for a bit to see what the deal was.

    Apparently the tram driver took a wide turn or something that caused the last car of the tram to be hit by the sign embeded in the hedges.
    When we saw it, the back poles were busted off and a large chunk of the sun roof was ripped off of the car.
    A bunch of security and Disney suits were treating people for cuts and scrapes. I didn't see any major injuries but they could have been taken care of before we got there.

    We waited in the tram loading area for about a half hour and then they drove off the wrecked tram (after taking pics of the accident scene), cleaned up the mess and finally started letting people back on.
    I really wish i took pics.
    I couldn't believe how damaged the car was!

    Suicide and an auto accident in one day? That's really sad to hear. Hope everyone in the car was all right...

    Pretty sad accident. All passengers in the back train had scratches and brusies. The tram that recieved damaged is expected to be out of service for a while. This is also the first tram accident.

    To my surprise,
    I did not see any news stories regarding the tram incident at the park. I was there so I can confirm that this was a true accident. It was not that bad however people did leave with bruises.

    A friend sent this to me:

    I was told about what happened when I got to work. Something also happened at the parking structure that the news isn't saying. Apparently, some guest jumped from one of the floors of the mickey and friends parking structure and landed on one of the trams and then the tram driver lost control and i don't know what happened after that.

    That sounds rather suspicious, as if the day's two tragic stories could be accidentally intertwined in one mixed-up version.

    Isn't it amazing what a story some people can weave having just a couple of pieces of real information?

    No one jumped from the structure. That has got to be the dumbest story I have ever heard. Use some logic folks.

    That kids...is how rumors start.
