Florida bus accident lawyer alerts- Family of boy struck, killed by bus at Fort Wilderness Resort blamed Walt Disney World.
Lake Buena Vista, FL—While a wrongful death lawsuit has yet to be filed in connection with a fatal bus-involved traffic collision at Walt Disney World’s Fort Wilderness Resort, the family of the 9-year-old victim expressed their belief that Disney was at fault on Saturday, April 3, 2010. The young boy was riding his bike when the Disney Transport bus fatally ran him over, according to information provided by the Orlando Sentinel, as well as previous news coverage by Justice News Flash.
Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) troopers reported two children, ages 9 and 11, riding their bikes south along Big Pine Drive, located within the Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, when a southbound bus, driven by 56-year-old David Rich, hit the young boy for unknown reasons. The victim, identified as Chase Brubaker, was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. He was wearing a helmet at the time.
While FHP reports stated Brubaker veered off the sidewalk when he was struck, the unidentified girl who had accompanied him on his bike ride stated otherwise. The 11-year-old firmly contended they never left the sidewalk, which is separated from the road by a thin strip of grass. According to Kelly Brubaker, the victim’s mother, “They killed my son”. A full investigation into the fatal Fort Wilderness traffic accident is expected to be underway.
