Pizza

Why a German Police Officer Began Delivering Pizza

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

Being only a few minutes late with a pizza delivery can turn hungry customers into hangry ones, and it often becomes a marketing pitch for places promising delivery within a small window of time. So while we are quick to notice the late deliveries, not much attention is paid to how that cheesy circle of dough arrives at the door. In the German town of Gaggenau though, one household got a delivery they will never forget when the door was opened to a police officer.

When a 46-year-old pizza delivery driver collided his car into a medical supplies vehicle, both drivers were left with serious injuries, yet the undelivered pie lie waiting for its final stop. A police officer on the scene took notice of the pizza, which suffered no visible damage from the accident, and realized the delivery address was not far. Perhaps he had suffered from late deliveries in the past or just had a very kind heart, but either way he took the pizza away from the scene and made the final delivery himself.

Those are some luck customers!
