A Disneyland employee died Friday from her injuries after falling from a moving golf cart at the amusement park two days earlier.

Anaheim police and Anaheim Fire and Rescue personnel arrived at the resort in the area of ​​West Ball Road and South West Street around 11:30 a.m. PT on Wednesday in response to a collision that occurred backstage, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The Disneyland employee, later identified by the Orange Country Coroner Division as 60-year-old Fullerton resident Bonnye Mavis Lear, hit her head after falling from the moving golf cart and was taken to a local hospital in serious condition. Lear died from her injuries on Friday, two days after being hospitalized for severe head trauma.

“We are heartbroken by the loss of Bonnye and extend our sincere condolences to all who cared for her,” Ken Potrock, president of Disneyland Resort, said in a statement shared with Variety. “Right now, we are focused on supporting her family and our cast members during this tragic event and ensuring they have the resources they need.”

Lear, who worked at Disneyland Resort for 24 years, recently supported the membership services of Club 33, a private dining club located in the New Orleans Square portion of the theme park. The members-only club, inspired by the executive VIP lounges at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, is located above the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction and opened in 1967.

Anaheim police continue to investigate the traffic incident.
