TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — In what appears to be a crazy day for car wrecks in Taichung, a man lost control of his vehicle while turning left and sailed into a hotpot restaurant.
Early this morning, while making a hard left turn, a 27-year-old man surnamed Chiang (江) lost control of his black sedan and plowed into a hotpot eatery in Taichung, reported China Times. Fortunately, the shop had already closed and no injuries were reported.
Residents in Taichung’s Tanzi District heard a loud crashing sound on Zhongshan Road. When they ventured out to check on the source of the sound, they found a hotpot shop at a corner of the street with a huge hole punched through its corner window by a black sedan.

The car had plunged deep inside the restaurant, shattering windows, smashing tables chairs, and obliterating a metal door. In the process, the right side of the sedan had sustained serious damage.
