Family's Lucky Escape After Bizarre Car Crash Outside McDonald's

A family had a very lucky escape at a McDonald's drive-thru, as they missed a car crash by just seconds.

A woman, her partner and their four-year-old son were inside their van when a car landed on top of the car directly behind them.

Shocking images show a silver car on top of a blue Vauxhall Vectra, outside the drive-thru in Wakefield.

The Vectra had one passenger inside.

The shaken mum who had been in the nearby van told The Mirror: "I didn't see anything as I was in a van facing forward. We only heard the crash from behind us.

"We were [there] a few minutes before the blue car pulled in, with a four-year-old in the car, so we were extremely lucky.

"He was shook up. We all were after we saw behind us what had happened.

"The noise was enough to scare him.

"I don't think it was a family in the car that was hit. As far as I could see it was just one person."

Following the incident, which took place yesterday (Sunday 6 December), a tweet from Wakefield District Patrol Team read: "This is not how to get to the front of the drive-thru queue!

"Thankfully no injuries of note but we are having issues removing the vehicle at the minute!"

Images captured later showed the car being taken away by a crane.

Last month, a Porsche driver had an absolute nightmare after managing to crash into two cars while trying to park in a driveway.

In a clip shared on social media, the silver Tay can can be seen making its way up the drive, which is on a fairly steep incline.

For a few seconds, the pricey car stops before suddenly shooting forwards, crashing into the back of the car in front and then flying off the drive all together - landing on top of a vehicle parked on the curb below. Not ideal.

Luckily for the driver, he wasn't injured in the incident but was a bit 'shaken up'.

Posting on Twitter, the driver explained: "If you're wondering how this happened, pressing the brake and accelerator at the same time engages launch control, on this Taycan it's 0-60 in 2.4 seconds."
