A 63-year-old woman was killed after the car she was driving was rear-ended by a Disney Magical Express bus near Walt Disney World’s Epcot theme park.

Witnesses said that the car had stopped on the road for an unknown reason and that the bus was unable to stop in time. The police reported that the woman was taken to Celebration Health in Kissimmee and later died of her injuries.
