Disney Asked to Preserve Monorail Crash Evidence

ORLANDO (CN) - The mother of a Disney employee who was killed in a monorail accident wants the theme park ordered to preserve evidence in the July 5 crash.

Monorail pilot Austin Wuennenberg, 21, was killed when another pilot on the Epcot track backed his monorail into the one Wuennenberg was operating, Wuennenberg's mom claims in Orange County Court.

She filed the petition for a pure bill of discovery against Walt Disney Parks and Resorts U.S.

Disney is investigating the accident. Wuennenberg wants it ordered not to alter or destroy video surveillance footage, audio communication footage, system data and "black box" storage devices that "record critical information pertinent to the crash."

She is represented by Christian Searcy of West Palm Beach.
