George Lopez's restaurant in shambles after truck smashes into actor's taco joint sending four people to hospital

GEORGE Lopez’s restaurant is in shambles after a truck smashed into actor's joint in Los Angeles.

The accident sent four people, including a pedestrian, to the hospital.


Law enforcement sources told TMZ that a driver ran a stop sign on Tuesday outside of The Brews Hall in Torrance, CA.

The driver hit another car, which caused it to spin out of control and was sent crashing into the actor’s restaurant Chingon Kitchen.

Sources told the outlet that both of the drivers involved in the crash were injured, as well as a passenger and a pedestrian.

All four were taken to a local hospital with moderate injuries, while no one inside of the restaurant was hurt.

In photos obtained from the scene of the accident, the restaurant was clearly damaged during the dangerous crash.


The snaps showed a ton of broken glass, busted frames and smashed-up storage racks from where the truck ran into the building.

While the venue will have a lot of cleaning up to do in light of the crash, it appears that the 60-year-old actor and other investors will not lose a ton of money.

Sources told TMZ that the building has not been red tagged, which means that they can remain open.

Chingon Kitchen has multiple locations across California and Arizona, though the crash occurred at the Brews Hall location.


According to the actor’s website, the restaurant serves a variety of food items including tacos, burritos, bowls, Cabo stuffed potatoes, herb crusted rotisserie chicken and more.

The actor is best known for starring and producing on the self-titled sitcom George Lopez, which ran on ABC from 2002-2007.

He is also known for his stand-up comedy, which often finds him examining race and ethnic relations, as well as Mexican American culture. 

George’s other acting credits include roles in the films The Spy Next Door, Valentine’s Day, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Car Dogs, River Runs Red, No Man’s Land and Walking With Herb.

He will next appear in the upcoming thriller drama film Afterward.
