Disney horror crash as parents die while on dream vacation with their children

Two young daughters still in hospital unaware their mom and dad are dead

A mom and dad were tragically killed during a family vacation to Walt Disney World in Florida.

The parents were in the horror smash with their two daughters, Haley, 13 and Sophia, eight, who survived the wreck.

It is believed the two girls are still in hospital, still unaware their parents have passed away.

The family had scraped and saved to be able to take their two girls on the trip of a lifetime, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

But tragedy struck when a Ford Focus drifted into their Nissan on the freeway, forcing them off the road.

The Moyers’ Nissan collided with a tree at approximately 12.30pm on Sunday.

Both Greg, 40, who owned a muffler shop, and Sarah, 39, a McDonald’s restaurant manager, died but Haley and Sophia survived

According to local TV station WFTV Haley was seriously injured and Sophia was critically injured.

The girls were airlifted from the scene to Orlando’s Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.

The driver of the other vehicle, Charles King, 43, of New London, North Carolina, wasn’t hurt in the crash, according to News 13.

The dream family vacation had began on Thursday with visits to Disney World and Universal Studios all planned.

By Sunday, the family was ending the dream trip with a day at the beach, before returning  to their home in Leadwood, Missouri.

Close friend Loni Burnside Eaton told the Orlando Sentinel that the children were Greg and Sarah’s world.

‘They were very involved and supportive parents and just wanted the best for them, ‘ she said.

‘They wanted the girls to experience Disney and the beach. I can’t believe this really happened.’

Eaton described the couple as loving and said they helped many children, including Sarah’s sister’s kids who they had taken in to raise.

She said they also had two additional children.

Eaton also said Haley and Sophia had not been informed of what happened to their parents and that family was driving down to Florida to be with them and tell them the news.

The crash is still under investigation and no charges have been filed.
