Micro fiction: why did Karen hit the red Volkswagen?

That morning a bunch of half price McDonald’s vouchers had been posted through the door and were crammed into Karen’s purse alongside the children’s allowance. It took minutes to get through the super size meal and that included returning to the counter for more ketchup. Nursing the remains of her coke, she longingly watched the people with full trays. 'I’m only paying half price so it’s like having half a meal. I’ll have another. The Big Mac meal was simply delicious, but the intense saturation of sugar, fats, colorings and E numbers had no effect. Her stomach still rumbled, so another half price supersize meal was devoured. She didn’t bother with an apple pie and instead she had a strawberry McFlurry. Running across the road was when Karen felt the excruciating tightness in her chest. As the lorry’s brakes screamed her body floated through the air and landed on top of a red Volkswagen. The doctor was right; fast food would kill her, even if it was a Burger King supply lorry.
