Headline Goes Here

ORLANDO, Fla. - A settlement has been reached in a lawsuit against Walt Disney World that was filed by the family of a 9-year-old boy killed by a Disney bus.

Chase Brubaker and his friend were riding their bicycles at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort on April 1, 2010, when Brubaker's bike rolled off the sidewalk and into the side of an passing resort bus, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Crash investigators said the child was run over by the bus's rear tire. Brubaker was pronounced dead at the scene.

Despite FHP's findings that the bus driver was not at fault, Brubaker's family filed an auto negligence lawsuit in Orange County Circuit Court against Disney and the bus driver, David Rich.

On August 20, the Brubaker's lawsuit was voluntarily dismissed following a settlement, according to court records.

"The case has been settled to the parties' satisfaction," said a Walt Disney World spokeswoman.

The terms of the settlement are confidential.
