Truck crashes into ‘M-A-S-H’ Ohio hot dog eatery

  • August 1, 2014

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a tractor-trailer driver has died after he crashed into Tony Packo’s, the Ohio hot dog eatery made famous on “M-A-S-H.”

Police are still investigating the crash. No one was inside the restaurant at the time.

Toledo Fire Lt. Matthew Hertzfeld says firefighters were dispatched to the scene at about 7:15 a.m. Friday. He says the driver had to be extricated from the vehicle. The man’s name has not been released.

Hertzfeld says the restaurant has significant structural damage to its front and will have to be stabilized.

Tony Packo’s became a household name in the 1970s when actor Jamie Farr portrayed a homesick U.S. soldier in the Korean War who longed for Packo’s hot dogs.

The original Packo’s remains a tourist destination and is decorated with “M-A-S-H” memorabilia.
