Hey, We At The Chron Don't Know What Happened, But We Have Great Pics Of This Car Crash...

... into my favorite restaurant, Dimassi's Mediterranean Buffet. Leave it to the Comical to get exactly none of the facts one would want to know. The loss of Dimassi's for an undetermined period of time is just insult to injury atop the election. [/sigh]

Somebody on one TV channel (11 Houston CBS?) had someone's amateur video of the crash itself. If I find it, I'll link to it from here. (Yes, some people were hurt, apparently none seriously [but see the update].)

UPDATE: here is the Channel 11 Houston video. 11 News did a great deal better at obtaining the facts: it was an SUV; 9 people were injured, several taken to the hospital; the driver, a first-time customer, accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brake. Many a time I've sat in that window or near it; Stella likes window seats. I think it may be a while before Dimassi's hosts us again. (Aside: despite the anchorman's pronunciation, the African/Middle Eastern students I knew at UTSPH years ago said "Dimahssi's," not "Dimessy's." I concede it's pretty Dimessy at the moment...)
