Monorail Crash Kills Driver Stuns Passengers At Disney World - MiceChat


More on the monorail crash and how it might have happened, (Via Daring Fireball) from some postings on Micechat It is possibly a user interface problem, possibly a central control problem ...


The question is why it happened on July 4th. Was it a coincidence or due to a superbly large workload for the system?

I think I recall reading that the crash happened at around 2:00 a.m., which would probably not indicate exceptionally high load factors (unless people stuck around after the fireworks to party and drink, then left at 2:00). It was probably a coincidence.

I read this post via the twitter feed. It was interesting to see both sides of the what will be an ongoing story.
