Missouri couple killed during Disney World, beach vacation

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Florida Highway Patrol says 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.

The Orlando Sentinel reports Greg and Sarah Moyers saved for months to take 13-year-old Hailey and 8-year-old Sophia to Disney World. 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.

Family friend Loni Burnside Eaton tells the Sentinel that family members are on their way to Florida to tell the girls their parents died.

King was not seriously injured in the crash. Charges had not been filed, but police continued to investigate the crash. A GoFundMe account has been set up for funeral expenses and for the Moyers' daughters. Click here if you'd like to donate.

Leadwood is about an hour and 10 minutes south and slightly west of St. Louis.
