ORLANDO, Fla. -- 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.
 
No charges have been filed. 
 
A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for the couple's two daughters.
