Anthony “Poot” McHan, 21, was driving north on Route 13 in the direction of Cape Charles Tuesday afternoon (December 17) when he lost control of his 2001 Toyota Tundra pickup. According to reports, the truck ran off the road near Capeville and flipped several times, ejecting McHan, who reportedly was not wearing a seatbelt. He died at the scene. Virginia State Police said that alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
