Chef Carter Recovering after Car Accident on Bridge

Chef Robert Carter of Mount Pleasant's Carter's Kitchen and uptown's Rutledge Cab Co. was recently in an accident on the Ravenel Bridge. Here are the details from City Paper: "...a stopped truck caused a domino effect crash. He crashed into a car stopped behind the stopped truck and the car behind him crashed into him."

Lisa Buzzelli, a friend of Carter's who also works with him on the Lowcountry Food Bank's Chef's Feast, told City Paper he had surgery at MUSC for a broken neck. Other injuries include a broken nose and broken ribs, but the crash did not paralyze him.

In a recent, unrelated interview Carter talked to Eater about splitting his time between the his two businesses. At the time, he said the seven-minute drive, including a trip over the bridge, made it easy to go back and forth between both restaurants.

Update via email from his press team: "Both restaurants are business as usual. We don't know the exact timeline, but do know he is going to have a full recovery and his spirits are high."

Get well soon, Chef.
