Wienermobile Crashes Into Home
MOUNT PLEASANT - A 27 foot Oscar Mayer Wienermobile crashed into a Mount Pleasant house around 11:45 Friday morning.
Police say the 22 year old driver from Pennsylvania wanted to see Lake Michigan, so she drove down the street for the view. But when she got to the end, she tried to turn around, and instead of pressing the brake, accidentally pressed the gas and drove into a lakeside home. 11 year old neighbor Zachary Nielsen saw the crash.
“It was all bent up and it was stuck and there were like pieces falling off and it sounded like a gunshot," he said.
The crash surprised Zachary, but it shocked homeowner Paula Righter, whose son called her to let her know what happened.
