Burnout bungle at Maccas drive through
2.09pm A 23-year-old Mackay resident has been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle after colliding with a fence at a McDonald's restaurant.
The man had just collected his fast food from the drive through window at the McDonald's on Yaamba Road shortly before 11am when he exited the lane and attempted a burn-out in his 1998 Nissan.
However the burn-out flopped when he accelerated and crashed into a fence bordering the drive-through lane.
Sergeant Allan Fleming said the driver then fled the scene but was located this afternoon after police received information from witnesses as to his identity.
He will appear in the Rockhampton Magistrates Court in due course.
