Title Car below fill at Grassy Knoll

Description The image shows a car at the bottom of a slope down from a road. The road runs along the top area of the photograph, and appears to be cut into the side of a hill. The land slopes down toward the road on the upper right side, and slopes down away from the road on the left side. There appears to be snow on the ground around both sides of the road, and the car may have driven off of the road. Image taken somewhere between mileposts 165.5-175 in section 1S of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The designated area is near Grassy Knoll in the Rocky Knob area, located in Patrick County and Floyd County, Va. The photographer and date of image are unknown.
