Nelson / Albemarle County, VA
After a beautiful Thanksgiving, many people were heading back home on Sunday to start their post holiday work week. Combine heavy traffic and fog with near zero visibility on Afton Mountain along I-64 and you had a recipe for disaster. Early Sunday afternoon numerous multi-car accidents starting happening on the interstate.
