VDOT Looks To Reconfigure Crash-Prone Intersection

VDOT is looking at ways to reconfigure a busy intersection along US Route 460 that’s been the scene of a number of accidents, including a fatal crash earlier this year that claimed the life of Dinwiddie teen Dakota Reid. Reid was a passenger in a car that was ht as it tried to cross New Cox Road when it was struck by a sedan. The new configuration is an effort to prevent accidents like that one. VDOT says the way the pattern is now, there are 32 conflict points where traffic paths interact in that vicinity.
