A Nelson couple had a pickup truck crash into their house on Thursday. But they weren’t particularly surprised: this kind of thing happens all the time. Earlier this year, three cars drove off the curvy road and into their car in just two weeks. Last July, a tanker full of tar ran off the road and dumped its load in front of their home, killing their dog and causing thousands of dollars in damage to their property. Despite repeated requests, VDOT refuses to put up a guardrail in front of their home, saying that it could be dangerous if a driver crashed into it. Jake Mooney has the story in today’s Progress.
