STRANGE BUT TRUE: Man Orders Pizza After Crashing Car Into Restaurant

Nebraska man gets foot stuck on accelerator, orders pie during crash aftermath.

A Lincoln, Neb., man made the best of a bad situation after driving his car through the front door of a pizza restaurant by ordering a pie for himself.

Local news station WOWT Channel 6 reports that just before noon on Wednesday, Jan. 9, an elderly man got his foot stuck on his car’s accelerator and drove into a Valentino’s pizza restaurant. As concerned bystanders called 911, the man ordered a pizza from inside his car, according to ABC’s KLKN.

Witnesses say the man didn’t appear to be hurt or in shock; however, he was taken to a hospital as a precaution. No other injuries were reported.

Unfortunately, the man didn’t receive his pizza before he was transported to the hospital.

Nebraska Central News’ KOLN-TV said the health department visited the restaurant to make sure none of the food had been contaminated during the crash.

Although the crash caused no major structural damage to the building, the restaurant closed its doors for the remainder of the day.
