German police came to the aid of a pizza courier who crashed his car in the southwest German town of Gaggenau—by completing his delivery. The AP reports that the 46-year-old driver hit another car early Saturday after failing to yield. Both drivers required hospital treatment in the accident that caused an estimated $22,000 in damage. "The pizzas were still hot and they were close to where they were meant to end up, so we simply completed the delivery," a police rep said, according to German news agency DPA via Deusche Welle. Police said that after dealing with the accident the officers were able to hand over the "shaken but still edible pizzas" to the customers. (More pizza stories.)
