    A Cast Member at Walt Disney World was identified today as the pedestrian killed in a hit-and-run crash near theme-park property.

    Liu Ye, 22 from China, was a participant in Disney's International College Program, which brings students from around the world to work in the Walt Disney World theme parks.

    Disney spokesman Bryan Malenius confirmed she worked in attractions at the Magic Kingdom.

    "We are deeply saddened by the loss of our fellow Cast Member Liu Ye," Malenius said. "Our hearts go out to Ye's loved ones and we will continue to provide support to her family and co-workers."

    The driver accused of running a red light and fatally striking Ye with a car was arrested Wednesday.

    Jennifer Toth, 43, of San Jose, Calif., was charged with leaving the scene of a crash with a death, said FHP Sgt. Kim Montes.

    The woman, who was staying at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando, was booked into the Orange County Jail on a $20,000 bond, records show.

    Though troopers suspect alcohol could have played a role in the accident, Toth showed no signs of being under the influence when they made contact with her Wednesday. She made bond on Thursday.

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    The particular intersection is known amongst cp's to be a dangerous crossing, especially for those without knowledge of the American traffic system. It was outside Vista Way where I lived

    Sad loss :(
