Witnesses told police that a man became so incensed at a drive-through Sunday when told there was no ice cream that he backed into a car behind him in order to get out of line and leave the restaurant.

Timmy Edwards, 57, of Moultrie reported to the Moultrie Police Department that he was behind the driver at about 2 p.m. Sunday at McDonald’s. The man apparently got angry at an employee and in leaving put the Dodge D200 truck into reverse.

Edwards told police that despite his honking his horn the man continued backing into his 1998 Ford Mustang. He could not back up because there were other people behind him.

The trailer hitch struck the Mustang, causing slight damage to the front bumper, police said.

A restaurant employee reported that when she told the driver of the Dodge that they were out of ice cream he got mad and put his truck in reverse, ignoring the driver behind him honking the horn.

Police said that a tag number for the truck came back to a 1993 Dodge truck belonging to a Norman Park man.

In another reported hit-and-run incident, on Saturday Barbara Lynn Kennedy, 47, 200 15th St. S.E., was charged with driving under the influence, leaving an accident with damage, suspended license and failure to yield while turning left.

She was arrested after police investigated an accident at about 2:42 p.m. Saturday at Talmadge Drive and First Avenue Southeast.

Lucas Key of Norman Park told police that the driver of a black car turned in front of him as he was entering the intersection. The female driver got out of the car and said something about insurance before quickly getting back in the car and leaving. She had slurred speech and appeared to be impaired.

Witnesses got a tag number which was traced to Kennedy’s residence. She told police that she was in an accident but that it was not her fault and she left because she did not have a license, reports said.
