OSCAR MAYER WIENERMOBILE
CRASHES INTO WISCONSIN HOME
MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. – One southern Wisconsin homeowner is probably not in love with the Oscar Mayer wiener. The famed hot dog's Wienermobile crashed Friday into the deck and garage of a home in Mount Pleasant, about 35 miles south of Milwaukee.
Police said the driver was trying to turn the Wienermobile around in the driveway and thought she was moving in reverse. But she instead went forward and hit the home. It sat in the driveway as if it were stuck in the garage Friday afternoon.
No one was home and no one was injured. No citations were immediately issued.
Both the home and vehicle suffered moderate damage, which Oscar Mayer spokeswoman Sydney Lindner says insurance will cover.
Police hadn't been able to speak to the homeowner as of early Friday evening.
I THOUGHT YOU'D WANT TO KNOW. I GUESS I'M GLAD I'M NOT AN OSCAR MAYER WIENER AFTER ALL!
