Driver Crashes Into A Kosher Bakery

It takes an experienced hand to make up a batch of sourdough bread. Any professional baker can tell you that many factors can make it turn out less than perfect.

The Miami Herald. reports that workers at a Kosher bakery in Miami had their efforts ruined when a car crashed into the building where they were making bread for the next day’s business.

In an Instagram post,  Zach Stern, also known as Zach the Baker, said:

Sourdough bread can be tricky, you can have a perfectly active sourdough mother, good mix, good fermentation, good shape, good proof, and then all of a sudden a Chevrolet smashes into the bakery and ruins everything.”

Police say that at approximately 5:00 a.m. on Monday, October 5th, a  1979 white Chevrolet Monte Carlo crashed into the building at 295 NW 26th Street, obliterating a set of hurricane impact doors.

Surveillance video taken from inside the bakery shows the headlights of a vehicle before the driver lost control and crashed into the bakery.

Stern told reporters that thankfully, none of the workers who were inside at the time were injured in the crash.  Even the driver of the vehicle was uninjured in the accident.

This is not the first time that Stern’s business has undergone challenges in 2020.  Just a few weeks ago, a fire broke out in the bakery during Rosh Hashana – one of the busiest times of the year for Stern’s business.  In 2017, one of the bakery’s trucks were stolen and used in a bank heist.

“We’re warriors,” Stern said with a laugh. “We roll with the punches: Zika, hurricanes, COVID, a bank heist. This latest punch wasn’t too hard.”
