Disney World Monorail Crash Kills Employee

Walt Disney World says a monorail at the Florida theme park is out of service after an employee death.

The Reedy Creek Fire Department tells Orlando television station WESH that two monorails collided around 2 a.m. Sunday, killing the operator of one of the trains. The station says no guests were seriously injured.

Walt Disney World vice president of public affairs Mike Griffin issued a statement offering condolences to the employee's family member and saying the monorail was closed.

A Disney spokeswoman declined to discuss details of the accident.

Messages were left by The Associated Press seeking comment from the fire department and the sheriff's office.
