Update on monorail crash…

Posted on

The driver who was killed in the early morning monorail tragedy was 21-year-old Austin Wuennenberg.  Austin had been a monorail driver since 2008, according to Central Florida News 13.  There were a total of 8 people aboard the two monorails: two drivers and a family of six.  The other driver and the family sustained no serious injuries.

I still haven’t seen any details on how this accident occurred.  If anything develops, I’ll be sure to post it.


Just a reminder to everyone: the monorails are still a safe way to travel in Walt Disney World.  In 38 years of operation, this is the first fatal accident to occur on the tracks.  There have been other incidents (which you can read about here), but those involved only received minor injuries.  Please do not be put off by this accident.
