Two Oklahomans taken to hospital after McDonald’s sign falls

WEATHERFORD, Okla. – Two McDonald’s customers in Weatherford were taken to the hospital today after an unusual accident.

According to the Weatherford Fire Department, a large McDonald’s sign fell on two cars that were in the drive-thru, trapping one driver for nearly 15 minutes.

Officials say they do not know why the sign fell.

The drivers in each vehicle were taken to a nearby hospital.  Officials say they were both alert with no obvious major injuries.

The fire department says it is a good thing there were no passengers in either vehicle.

Mike Karlin, the interim fire chief, believes the accident would have been much worse had there been any passengers in the first vehicle.
