LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Authorities have identified the woman who died in a bus crash near Walt Disney World's Epcot theme park.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that a Disney's Magical Express bus rear-ended a car Friday afternoon. Witnesses said the car driven by 63-year-old Solange Blain stopped in the middle of the road, and the bus was unable to brake.

Disney officials confirmed Sunday that Blain worked at one of the park's hotels.

Disney officials said in a statement they were saddened "by the loss of a fellow cast member" and offered heartfelt condolences to her family.

FHP says two of the 36 bus passengers were hospitalized with minor injuries. Disney officials said they are also providing support to the passengers.

No charges were immediately filed.

Disney's Magical Express is a complimentary shuttle service that transports guests between the airport and the resort.
