‘Heartless’ Driver Runs Over Ducklings At McDonald’s Drive-Thru

Is it just us or do ducklings make everyone feel pretty warm inside? They're just one of them creatures that no one can dislike - or it would seem.

One driver clearly wasn't too fond when she ran over two ducklings as the little family crossed the road at a McDonald's drive-thru yesterday.

Another motorist, Vicky Smith, watched in disbelief as the 'heartless' driver crushed two stragglers as the offending car drove off after placing their order in Skegness, Lincolnshire.

Vicky said that the blue Renault Megane driver showed no hint of remorse as she drove to the next window without looking back.

The mum-of-two was with her seven-year-old son, Saul, and her five-year-old daughter, Eve. She said both were left upset by what they saw.

39-year-old Vicky told Lincolnshire Live: "We were completely gob smacked - she did not even look back after she did it.

"My son was distraught. When we were coming back round we could see the daddy duck looking for the little ducklings. We couldn't believe anyone could be so heartless."

She added: "She placed her order and then just drove through them. We thought that it wouldn't matter if she had to wait a few minutes for them to move so she could drive forward. 'She obviously saw them."

We know they're small but come on.

According to the Metro, Vicky and her children had travelled to Skegness from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, to enjoy a couple of days at the coast during the half term holiday.

She had been taking pictures and filming the ducklings for Saul, who has learning difficulties, so he could show his class mates what he had been doing during the half term break.

Vicky says the incident has left the young LAD upset. You and us too, Saul.

She said: "He is very upset about it. He's been telling his granddad about the nasty woman who drove over the ducklings.'"

Vicky got out of her car after the incident and told McDonald's staff, who took the dead ducklings away.
