Filming in Georgia: SpongeBob cart crash ends with restaurant damage
Special to SEGAZINE
A member of the film crew for the “SpongeBob Squarepants 2” movie caused an accident Wednesday morning that sent a woman to the hospital and damaged a downtown building, according to city officials.
Paul Brinkley, a resident of Wilmington, N.C., was cited for failure to yield while entering a roadway after the John Deere utility vehicle he was driving east on Congress Lane entered Whitaker Street without stopping and collided with a van about 6:30 a.m., reported Savannah-Chatham police officer Michael Zaragoza.
The driver of the van, Barbara Maxwell, then crashed into the wall of the Hercules Bar & Grill Restaurant on the west side of Whitaker, slightly north of Broughton Street.
Maxwell was treated and released that day after being transported to Candler Hospital.
