FORT MOHAVE, AZ — High winds caused a fast food restaurant sign to fall and crush a vehicle in northern Arizona earlier this week.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday the incident happened near Highway 95 and Aztec Road at a McDonald's restaurant.

The large restaurant sign fell on top of a customer's vehicle, but fortunately, no one was inside the car.

Photos posted by the sheriff's office showed the vehicle crushed underneath the weight of the metal sign, surrounded by broken window glass.
