A driver ended up losing control and landing on top of another vehicle in a freak collision at a McDonald’s drive-thru.

The motorist was driving past the fast food chain’s branch in the Snowhill retail park, near Junction 41 of the M1 in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, on Sunday night.

Just as the driver pulled off a roundabout in the direction of the motorway, it is thought that their grey Vauxhall mounted the curb by the McDonald’s branch.

The car ploughed through a barrier, careered up a ramp and ended up airborne.
