While on their way to the beach from Disney, a mother and father from Missouri were killed in Orlando in a car crash. Also in the car at the time were two young daughters who survived the crash and are currently unaware both of their parents are dead.
Greg and Sarah Moyers had scraped and saved to be able to take their girls Haley, 13, and Sophia, eight, to Disney, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Greg, 40, owned a muffler shop, and Sarah, 39, was a McDonald’s restaurant manager.
While on their way to the beach a 2016 Ford Focus drifted into Greg’s 2007 Nissan on Interstate 4. This forced them off of the road and caused them to collide into a tree at approximately 12:30pm on Sunday.
Haley, 13, was seriously injured and Sophia, 8, was critically injured in the crash. Both were airlifted from the scene of the crash 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.
Close friend Loni Burnside Eaton told the Orlando Sentinel that the children were Greg and Sarah’s world, and 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.
