Man crushed to death at McDonald's identified as Tony Eyles

Photos of Tony Eyles, 42, who had stopped at the Main and Terminal McDonald's location at 5:30 a.m. on his way to work. He had finished paying for his food but dropped his bank card. He reached to pick it up, but his vehicle kept rolling, and he was crushed between his car and the door jam.
Tony Eyles is remembered as “the perfect dad.”

A 42-year-old married father of two has been identified as the man who was crushed to death in a freak accident at the drive-thru window of a Vancouver McDonald’s restaurant.

Tony Eyles was grabbing breakfast around 5:30 a.m. at the fast-food eatery on Tuesday when he dropped his bank card and got out to retrieve it — only to be pinned against the building by his car, News 1130 radio reported.

He was on his way to work at the time.

Eyles died just a few weeks short of his ninth wedding anniversary, leaving behind two children, ages eight and six, the outlet said.

“He’s just the perfect dad, the perfect husband” Eyles brother-in-law, Neal Pender, told the station. “Unfortunately [my newborn] never got to meet Tony. Tony would have adored that kid and he would have adored Tony, too.”

Two separate fundraisers for the family have brought in more than $100,000 from nearly 800 donors to help the family as of Monday morning.

Vancouver police and the British Columbia coroner’s office are still investigating.

“You know, I looked up to him,” Pender said. “He should still be here. They are going to have to do an investigation on this because it just doesn’t make sense.”
