Chicago Area Couple Injured By Falling Arches At McDonald’s

A Naperville, Illinois couple has been seriously injured in a bizarre accident at a McDonald’s in Eastern Arizona, according to the Daily Herald. A giant set of golden arches fell and crushed their SUV.

They were reportedly just sitting in the parking lot in a Chevy Trailblazer when high winds toppled the arches over. The winds were in excess of 55 m.p.h. The accident took place on Wednesday around 12:30 p.m. on the Navajo Nation reservation in Window Rock.

One occupant sustained a large laceration on his head. The other had to be freed from the vehicle by emergency personnel and had head, neck, back and arm injuries. They were taken to a local hospital by ambulance, however the female victim was later airlifted to a hospital in Phoenix, AZ and is reportedly in critical condition.

It has not been reported if the couple has retained a personal injury lawyer, but there is a good chance that they will. The couple has a strong premises liability case against McDonald’s. Giant golden arches do not fall over in the wind unless someone was negligent.
