Going to McDonald’s and getting a happy meal is a treat for children. Every child seemingly knows what a happy meal is nowadays and their eyes light up when they open that bag and pull out a toy.
In recent san diego car accident news, a nice family meal at McDonald’s turned bad last as a young child and an infant suffered injuries when a SUV slammed into the walls of the fast-food chain in Anaheim.
A 77-year old woman — who was driving the SUV — was backing out of a handicapped parking spot when she reversed into the store hitting the two boys. While car accidents are the leading cause of injury and death for children, what this story goes to show is that pedestrian accidents, too, can cause injury to anyone at anytime.
In fact, each year, over 60,000 people are killed and 100,000 are injured in pedestrian accidents in the United States. While the cause of the accident is still unknown, distracted drivers are the leading cause of pedestrian accidents.
The woman who backed into the restaurant also complained of pain.
