Internet news sites were buzzing with the story about the car crash Pink’s Hot Dogs earlier this week. In case you missed the story, a vehicle slammed into a parking meter at Pink’s Hot Dogs at 709 N. La Brea Ave., but  fortunately there were no injuries to any customers. Typically there’s always a small crowd of people lined up along the sidewalk waiting to place orders at the restaurant so it was a quite lucky that no one was hurt.

City News Service reported the crash occurred around 2:30 p.m.  KNBC Channel 4 reported the crash between two vehicles sent one car crossing onto the sidewalk where it sheared off a few parking meters before coming to stop in front of the restaurant.  Eater LA reported the crash as did LAist which featured additional photos showing the offending car right up to the take-out counter.

A message on the Pink’s Twitter account (@pinkshotdogs) read: “Thank goodness everyone is OK. Never before in 76 years. The Pink family thanks everyone for their concerns.”
