Cops: Pa. man drove DUI, flipped at Mickey D’s

SHREWSBURY, Pa. (AP) — Police say a man was driving drunk — and too burger-flipping fast — when his car overturned at a McDonald’s drive-thru lane.


Online court records don’t list an attorney for 21-year-old Homer Weikel IV, who was charged Tuesday for the Nov. 24 crash at the restaurant in Shrewsbury Township, York County.


The York Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1cX8YTC ) reports police determined Weikel accelerated too fast pulling away from the drive-thru window just after 1 a.m. His Hyundai Sonata hit a curb, went over a stone wall, and flipped.


Police say Weikel and a 21-year-old female passenger were taken to York Hospital with moderate injuries, while two others in the car weren’t hurt.


A phone call Wednesday to a number listed under Weikel’s name and address was not immediately returned.
