Blimpie reopens after truck crashes into it
Sandwich shop closed SundayCovington s
Damage from a vehicle at the Blimpie restaurant on Elm Street.

Covington-The Blimpie sandwich shop on Elm Street was open Tuesday after being forced to close by Covington Fire Marshall Tony Smith Sunday. 

The sandwich shop was shut down due to damage caused by a truck, pulling a trailer.

A truck crashed into the sandwich shop shortly before 1 p.m. Sunday, causing structural damage to the restaurant according to Covington Fire Marshall Tony Smith.

“Because this is a load-bearing wall, he’s going to have to get somebody in here to put stiff legs under it, at a minimum,” Smith said.

The truck was parked behind the restaurant when the driver went in to order a sandwich, and it rolled down into Blimpie unattended.
