A woman was airlifted to hospital Sunday following an accident at the McDonald's drive-thru in Courtenay.

A woman was airlifted to hospital Sunday following an accident at the McDonald’s drive-thru in Courtenay.

Const. Nicole Hall of the Comox Valley RCMP confirmed shortly before 11 a.m., a driver leaned out of her vehicle at the drive-thru to pick up money that had fallen when the van she was driving moved forward, and pinned the driver.

“It hasn’t been determined if she had the vehicle in park, but it could be at some point her foot was on the brake petal, and then her foot released,” said Hall. “That’s what we’re looking into, but it hasn’t been confirmed.”

Ambulance services attended immediately, added Hall, as the woman suffered serious head injuries.

There’s no word about her condition.
