Freak Accident at Jack in the Box Drive-Thru Kills Man

A St. Louis-area man died in a freak accident Wednesday while buying food at a Jack in the Box drive-thru window, according to a report. Charles Wood Jr., 20, of Velda City, pulled up to the drive-thru window at an angle around 10 p.m., so he needed to open the car door and lean out to pick up his order, police said.

As he reached for his food, the car accelerated backward and pinned Wood against a tree, the report said. Wood suffered severe injuries to his head, neck, torso, and legs, and was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
