A Disneyland employee has died from injuries she sustained after falling out of a golf cart while on the job.

The employee — who was identified as 60-year-old Bonnye Mavis Lear of Fullerton, California, per CBS News — fell from a moving golf cart and struck her head at the California theme park on June 5, according to the Anaheim Police Department.

First responders arrived at Disneyland Resort just before 11:30 a.m. local time “regarding a traffic collision that occurred backstage,” police said.

Lear was found in “grave condition” following the incident and was transported to a local hospital, according to police. Two days later, on June 7, she died of her injuries.

Anaheim Police Traffic Detectives, who also responded to the scene of the collision, are currently investigating the collision that led to Lear’s death, police said.

Disneyland did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
