PostSubject: Man killed in McDonald's drive-though accident   June 23rd 2010, 1:05 pm

A US man has been killed in a freak accident at a McDonald's drive-through.

Richard Lowrie, from Ohio, was celebrating his 86th birthday on Monday when he was fatally crushed between his car door and the wall of the restaurant, the Sun Star Courier reports.

Police said Mr Lowrie had driven up to the first window of the restaurant and collected his change.

It is believed he then dropped his glasses and opened his car door to pick them up.

But, as Mr Lowrie leaned down to retrieve them, his foot accidentally hit the accelerator. Mr Lowrie was then dragged along hanging partially outside the car until he and the vehicle smashed against a wall.

Other McDonald's customers rushed to Mr Lowrie's aid, with one person turning off the car's ignition.

Another customer had a Bobcat construction vehicle and hooked it up to Mr Lowrie's car to try free him from between the building and the car.

Mr Lowrie was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
