“The bumper flew all the way to the middle of the parking lot and I’m like what is going on, then I see this boy he’s limping out of the building with his leg bent and he’s screaming bloody murder for everything and I’m sitting in my chair and my hands were shaking,” said Evelyn Terpstra, a McDonald’s employee.

A building inspector is checking the restaurant, which will be closed at least for the evening.
