Oh, those that would like to be an Oscar Meyer wiener may not truly want to be one on Sunday, February 15. That is the day that the Wienermobile lost control on a snow-covered road and ended up crashing into a pole in Enola, Pennsylvania.
Yes, there was damage to the Wienermobile, but luckily, no one was injured.

Local 21 News reported that the damage to the Wienermobile was actually quite severe. The front part of the bumper (bun) had a huge hole in it, and was almost ripped off entirely around the underside of the wiener.
The front windshield was completely shattered and pushed inward toward the cab of the vehicle. There was also damage to the front side of the wiener, and it’s quite shocking that no one was hurt.

Once word got out that the crash had happened, it began trending along all forms of social media and jokes were to be had. That is, of course, after it was revealed that no injuries had actually happened.
CBS Pittsburgh reported that the Wienermobile could end up being out of commission for quite some time.
The accident happened near Harrisburg along South Enola Road, and yes, the best thing is that no one was hurt. The second best thing is that Oscar Meyer has a number of Wienermobiles that all look the same, and won’t have to do without one entirely.
There still is no official word on what caused the giant hot-dog shaped vehicle to lose control and crash. Some believe it was the slick roadway, but that has yet to be confirmed.
It was way back in 1936 that some form of the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile debuted on the road, and it has obviously evolved. As technology advanced, the Wienermobile’s design changed and got better, and it is now obvious that they are built quite well.
For those hoping to be an Oscar Meyer wiener, just be very observant of the weather, as it could cause you some problems.
Luckily, the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile crash did not hurt anyone and the damage to the vehicle can surely be fixed. For now, some of the others will get out on the road, but they may stay out of Pennsylvania until winter is over.
