    Do we know there is not a body trapped under the car before we start making jokes?

    Has anyone Marion Barry yet? He needs to start planning a shelter to keep the drug dealers and thugs warm while McDonalds rebuilds over the winter.

    They’re saying it may have been a medical emergency that caused him to crash, possibly a Big Mac attack.

    Updates from the DC papers:
    “The driver, an adult male, and an adult female inside the McDonald’s suffered minor injuries from the crash, according to D.C. police spokesman Hugh Carew. The cause is still being investigated, he said.”

    “Firefighters had to rescue one customer caught in the rubble of the restaurant after the accident occurred. That customer and the driver were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries according to police.”

    RIP to the 15 panhandlers that were no doubt mowed down in the fray.

    I hope this guy recovers quickly and gets his car fixed soon. There’s a McDonald’s at the corner of 14th and U in dire need of the same treatment.
