Car wrecks Dundas West studio of photographer Pimentel

The studio of celebrated photographer George Pimentel is in ruins Saturday after a car blew through the front window of the Dundas Street West building about 2.30 a.m. The driver fled but was caught. Pimental told CP24 that the building was originally his father’s. When his parents immigrated to Canada, they opened up the studio in 1975. “It is our heritage,” he said. The car could have easily gone through the window of next door bar, Wallflower, which would have been full of patrons. Pimental said he is insured and plans to rebuild.
