A driver lost control of a Porsche sports car on Hengshan Road and crashed into the entrance of Sasha’s and Zapata’s yesterday night.
According to videos and photos circulating on WeChat, the car plowed through the gates of the popular restaurant and bar before ending up on the side of Sasha’s building.
Sasha’s released a statement this morning saying two guests were injured in the accident.
“Thursday night just after midnight, a car lost control on Hengshan Road and smashed through the main gates at Sasha’s & Zapata’s. Unfortunately two guests were injured and taken for medical attention. We wish them all the best for a speedy recovery. No staff were injured.”
As of this morning, the car has been removed and the entrance covered up by tarpaulin. But a peek over the sheets revealed the badly mangled gate.
The restaurant and bar has not responded to enquiries if they will open tonight. More updates to this story to follow.
