A Sunday night accident at a Thomson restaurant resulted in minor injuries to patrons and extensive damage to the building.
Georgia State Patrol Sr. Trooper Mark Cabe said the accident occurred around 8:45 p.m., at the Huddle House restaurant on National Avenue.
Cabe said Brenda F. Armstrong, 56, of Martin Luther King Jr. Street, was backing a Ford Expedition from a parking space, accelerated and panicked before backing into the building.
Capt. Jamie Bridges, of the Thomson Police Department, said he checked on Armstrong and about a dozen inside the restaurant and that a few received bumps and bruises, but none of the injuries were serious.
