UPDATE: Bobby Brown sent to hospital after East Tennessee car crash

NEWPORT, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities said singer Bobby Brown was examined at a hospital after he was involved in a minor car crash during filming of a reality show in rural East Tennessee.

Sheriff Claude Strange said there were no serious injuries in the wreck last week in Cocke County, but Brown and the driver, who was not identified, were taken to a hospital and later released.

Brown is filming a Country Music Television series along with "Brady Bunch" actress Maureen McCormick and pop singer Carnie Wilson in Newport.

The show is called "Outsider's Inn" and the backdrop is a local inn called "Christopher Place."

In the show, McCormick takes over the operation of the inn and enlists the help of Brown as entertainment coordinator for guests and Wilson as the chef.

Strange said no charges have been filed.
