Truth : Car Did Not Smash Into McD Restaurant Diners At Jalan Cheras!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media platforms, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Accident Occurred In Guatemala, Not Malaysia!

The accident captured in the viral video did not happen at the McD restaurant at Shell Jalan Cheras. It occurred in the town of El Naranjo, Guatemala, on February 10, 2023.

The fake news creator used this footage, probably because it’s new, which makes it difficult for people to fact check.

Fact #2 : It Was Not An McD Restaurant

The driver, 40 year-old Jacqueline Arévalo Rivas, who was accompanied by her friend, 35 year-old María José Alejandra Argueta, appeared to be waiting to refuel at a nearby petrol station.

After a motorcycle left, her car suddenly accelerated right into diners at an adjoining restaurant-bar. The full CCTV footage (see below) would show that the car continued deep into the restaurant, smashing into six friends who were seated inside.

Five of women were injured in the accident, two of them in serious condition. The video also clearly shows that it was not a McD restaurant.

Fact #3 : The Driver Was Charged With Culpable Injuries + Property Damage

The driver was charged with culpable injuries and property damage, with investigators looking to see if her car’s automatic gearbox somehow failed. They also carried out toxicology tests to determine if the driver was under the influence of any drugs.
