The victim’s car rolled forward, squeezing the man between the car frame and the wall of the burger shop. Rescue workers rushed over, but the Canadian died at the scene of the accident. His family and McDonald’s employees witnessed the drive-through death.
Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman Tania Visintin said, “This is an incredibly heartbreaking scenario, our deepest condolences go out to the friends and relatives of the victim.”
Usually the police are called to an accident in which two cars crashed into each other. “But the fact that no other car was involved – that makes it a tragically crazy accident,” says Visintin. Witnesses of the accident are visibly shocked.
The accident occurred on Wednesday morning at around 5:30 a.m. The man’s body was covered with a blue plastic sheet in front of the eyes of guests who wanted to have breakfast at McDonald’s. A tow truck took the gray Golf with it. It is not known whether the clearly visible traces on the driver’s door come from the accident or from the fire brigade’s rescue equipment.
Experts should now clarify why the car had started rolling. Fast food chain cameras recorded the accident.
