Well..the report says that no one suffered life threatening injuries - so that's the best news..
I also hope those passengers were heading home and not to WDW....

The reports say the bus on the east bound ramp from the north bound 417. That would be heading to the airport so they were heading home.

Also, for those who may not know, ME is run by Mears under contract. ME buses are Mears with Disney branding. So, this was really a Mears accident and not a Disney bus accident and has no relation to the accidents on WDW property.

Wow, I am sorry to hear that this happened to those passengers on the ME . However, there have been a couple of times where we were on ME (heading back to MCO) and I felt like I had to hold onto dear life because the driver wasn't being as careful as he should of been. Now, I am not saying it was the ME driver's fault in anyway for this accident, but just recalling a couple times in our past experiences.
