Just after 2 p.m. during Sunday brunch in West Hollywood, a grey Ferrari smashed into the entrance of reality star Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant, Pump. A spokesperson noted that one woman was transported to the hospital with minor cuts. It’s a bit of a miracle that others were unharmed at this busy intersection of Robertson and Santa Monica Boulevard.
According to TMZ, the Ferrari driver was not intoxicated and alleges he was cut off in traffic, accidentally veering into the restaurant’s front entrance. Pump did not close despite the incident, and simply utilized an undamaged section of the restaurant for dinner service. “We were very lucky that everyone else was uninjured and safe while dining during Sunday brunch,” says co-owner Ken Todd.
Pump is owned by Vanderpump Rules and former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump and husband Todd. The couple operates a significant slice of West Hollywood’s party strip, with Pump, Sur restaurant, and Tom Tom Bar all within a short distance of one another. The Vanderpumps also operates Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills and the Vanderpump Cocktail Garden in Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
