A major car accident on 184 closed lanes Tuesday afternoon. One car was left smashed and stranded in the middle of the road, while another was hit and pushed to the side of the highway. The event occurred in front of the Cape Charles Brewery.
The Mirror contacted the Town attempting to get information about the crash, however, Mayor Dize and Chief Pruitt did not respond. Town Manager DiRe told the Mirror that he only knew a ticket had been issued.
While the crash could have been worse, one has to question the wisdom of placing a drinking establishment with such a short entryway in a 55 mph zone. The owners of the brewery have previously asked that the speed limit be dropped, but once again this is a VDOT issue.
Concerns have been raised in the past as drunk visitors, unaware of the rules, attempt to drive golf carts on 184 back into town.
