A man who apparently had trouble reaching his food at a drive-thru window at a Jack in the Box restaurant on South Grand Boulevard was killed after he was pinned by his own car. Charles Wood Jr., 20, was pronounced dead at a hospital after the accident at the restaurant Wednesday night, police said.
Wood pulled up to the drive-thru window at an angle just after 10 p.m., police said. While trying to reach his food from the window, he apparently opened his door and leaned out of his car, police said. The car was in reverse and somehow accelerated backward, pinning Wood against a tree. Wood suffered serious injuries to his head, neck, torso and legs, police said. He was taken to a hospital and was pronounced dead there.
