Wow. Watch out where you go to lunch!
An 18-wheeler crashed into a McDonald’s in Grand Prairie yesterday and injured two employees. Workers are still cleaning up the mess caused by the wreck.
The truck driver, 43-year-old Adrian Vasquez of Arlington , was not even in the cab of the truck when it rolled passed a car and slammed into a truck, finally coming to a rest halfway inside a McDonald’s restaurant.
Two of the employees were trapped under debris from the crash and had to be pulled out by emergency crews. One of them was treated at the scene, while the other was taken to Methodist Dallas Medical Center.
The driver claimed that he had engaged the emergency brake, but a commercial vehicle inspector found that not to be the case.
Semi-trucks are dangerous machines. They are massive and sometimes difficult to control if something goes wrong. Oftentimes they can cause catastrophic levels of damage and injuries when they crash. Deaths are very common in semi truck crashes.
