The Metropolitan Police Department, City of St. Louis, said in a news release provided to PEOPLE that Charles Wood Jr., 20, was stopped in his vehicle at an angle in the fast food restaurant’s drive-thru when the accident happened.

Wood Jr. was attempting to retrieve his order from the pick-up window and had opened his car door to lean out.

“He evidently placed his car in reverse and accelerated, causing his car to go backwards and strike a tree, pinning him between the car and the tree,” the release said.

Wood Jr. suffered “serious injuries” to his head, neck, torso and legs, and was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His family has been notified.

Police told PEOPLE the traffic safety division is handling the investigation, which remains ongoing.

So sad.
