Convicted murderer rear ends woman twice in drive thru

A car accident is a scary event to be involved in, especially if the other car can’t be seen before it hits. This is often the case in rear end collisions in Wisconsin, when the driver of the front car is unable to see the car behind them before it hits them. Injuries from these car accidents can range from simple bumps and bruises to whiplash that can have lasting effects for many years. No matter how small the accident, it may be beneficial for an individual to be checked out by emergency personnel to determine how serious the injuries are.

After being released last year for serving time in prison for a previous murder conviction, a man recently crashed twice into the back of a woman’s car in a McDonald’s drive thru. The man was able to get his food after hitting the woman, but then fled the scene of the accident before law enforcement officials could arrive.

It is not known how serious the woman’s injuries are, but she was transported to the local hospital for treatment. Along with the charges for the accident, the man has now violated his parole that was set after he was convicted for a murder and robbery out of state.

It may not seem that an accident in a drive thru could be dangerous to another driver, but the injuries the woman sustained may have far-reaching consequences. She may be facing medical bills that she can’t pay, and because the man drove out without stopping to help, with the help of an attorney she may be awarded money from the other driver to pay for her bills.
