ORLANDO, Fla. — A Missouri couple is dead and their two young daughters are recovering from injuries after a traffic crash near Orlando during a Disney World vacation, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Greg and Sarah Moyers saved for months to take 13-year-old Hailey and 8-year-old Sophia to Disney World, the Orlando Sentinel reports. The Leadwood, Missouri, family visited the theme parks and were headed to the beach Sunday before their long drive home.
Troopers say a vehicle driven by 43-year-old Charles King of New London, North Carolina, drifted into their lane on Interstate 4, causing the Moyers’ vehicle to veer off the road and hit a tree.
No charges have been filed.
Family friend Loni Burnside Eaton tells the Sentinel that family members are on their way to Florida to tell the girls their parents died.
“The girls don’t know what happened to them yet. Everyone is on their way down there and that’s when they’ll tell them,” Eaton said. “It’s just devastating.”
