A 61-year-old Williams Lake man is in serious condition following a collision Wednesday.
The RCMP said a man parked his 2007 Silver Toyota Tacoma pickup in his driveway on Lakeview Crescent near the intersection on Broadway Avenue South.
As he exited the driver’s seat, the truck started to roll back out of the driveway. According to police, the man attempted to jump back in the driver’s seat, but fell to the ground, was pulled under the truck and run over by the unmanned vehicle.
The truck continued rolling, striking a parked unoccupied car and continued on until it went over the retaining wall in the McDonald’s parking lot where it came to rest on the roof of an occupied red Ford 500. The couple in the Ford suffered minor injuries.
When a McDonald’s manager tried to console the truck owner’s dog, who was in the truck, the dog bit her hand. However, as emergency crews attended the scene, the manager was seen making sure the dog was OK before returning inside to tend to her hand.
Emergency crews responded to a collision at McDonald’s Restaurant drive-through during the noon hour Wednesday.
RCMP said a truck parked improperly in neutral rolled down Lakeview Crescent, struck a car that was parked facing north and then rolled onto its side crashing into a car that was waiting in the drive through.
The car waiting in the drive-through, then struck another car in front of it.
Two people were taken to the hospital by B.C. ambulance including the owner of the truck, who in trying to stop his truck from rolling received head injuries.
A passenger in one of the other cars who was sent to be checked for whiplash was later released, the RCMP said.
Police were returning to the hospital this afternoon to check on the owner of the truck and said the incident is still under investigation.
