After the employee reversed into a parking space, the Good Samaritan blocked him and notified the authorities.
The driver went back to McDonald's and was gone by the time authorities arrived at the scene. He was arrested by police later that day when he returned.
Paramedics were called to assist the woman, and she was treated on site. The woman left soon after being examined, and there was no need for a hospital visit.
The driver's name was not released immediately, but the owner of the branch said that the safety of their customers takes "highest priority.
Mary Johnson added:
"We are working closely with law enforcement as they investigate the situation and performing our own review of this matter."
Authorities only confirmed later that the driver was 25-year-old Kyle Snyder, also known as Raiven Le Fay, and the victim was 76 years old.
A similar case from Rexburg left the community shocked when a drunk driver was to blame for a 3-vehicle pile-up in front of Taco Bell.
None of the drivers or passengers were injured, but several eyewitnesses spotted the drunk driver narrowly miss six or seven other vehicles before the accident.
Ricardo Contreras, another eyewitness, said it couldn't have turned out so much worse and lives couldn't have been lost.
The passengers of one of the vehicles involved in the accident said shortly after the incident that they are glad the drunk driver "is going to jail to pay for his actions."
