HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania, February 16, 2015 –
Global warming Climate change notched its latest casualty today on a snowy road not far from Pennsylvania’s state capital.
According to several news sources, an Oscar Mayer Wienermobile fighting wintry driving conditions encountered a slick patch in the 500 block of South Enola Road, located in East Pennsboro Township near Harrisburg.
Skidding out of control, the Wienermobile slammed into a utility pole.
The impact severely damaged the iconic vehicle’s front end which was apparently designed to resemble the bottom half of a modernist hot dog bun.
CBS21 TV News in Harrisburg reported that the vehicle’s “two female occupants were not injured in the crash,” which occurred “at about 12:30 p.m., said John Bruetsch, public information officer for Cumberland County.”
The damaged vehicle is one of eight distinctive Wienermobiles driven around the country to promote Kraft’s well-known brand of prepackaged meat products. Six of the vehicles are similar to the models involved in the crash, while two are “mini” versions of these distinctive cars.
