One Of The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile Cars Crashed

They’ve been on the road for more than 70 years, with a couple of years of pause during the World War II, so it’s no wonder every now and then one of the famous Wienermobile gets damaged in unfortunate crashes. It happened again this Sunday, in Pennsylvania, yet luckily nobody got hurt, not even the giant wurst that is basically the vehicle's cabin.

It turns out the giant hot dog on wheels slid off the road Sunday in Enola, Pennsylvania. In fact the famous hot dog maker later confirmed on their Twitter account that nobody got hurt and that soon enough the wurst-machine will soon take its rightful path of cruising the country’s roads in the restless search for Oscar Mayer fans.

As expected, most of the passerby motorists stopped to take a picture of the peculiar car who is quite famous around US. We’re not sure if the crash has anything to do with the vehicle’s size, but we’ll remind the Wienermobile has grown significantly over the years, as the vehicles are now 11 feet (3.35 meters) tall, 27 feet (8.2 meters) long and just over 14,000 pounds (6,350 kg).

Since we’re pretty sure you’ve seen the four-wheeled wurst at least once before, we figured detailing its specs wouldn’t be a bad idea so here it is. The car was custom-built to take the shape of a giant hot dog, as the massive wurst’s shell is made of fiberglass. Powered by a 6.0-liter V8 engine, inside there’s a ketchup-and-mustard styled carpet, hot-dog shaped dashboard and a blue sky ceiling.
