Route 250 & 151 Intersection
Western Albemarle County, Virginia
Two different traffic incidents along Route 250 (Rockfish Gap Turnpike) caused traffic delays Saturday afternoon. The first came in 4PM when a large truck got caught on a curve going up old Route 6 (Mountain Rd) just above the post office near Route 250. That was in Nelson County.
The second mishap was reported as an accident at the intersections of Route 250 and 151 in Western Albemarle County at the bottom of Afton Mountain.
As of late Saturday night, though injuries had been reported in the motorcycle accident at 250 & 151, they didn’t appear to be life threatening.
After an hour or two of backed up traffic the roadways were cleared at both locations.
