  A new book says Sen. Edward M. Kennedy was involved in another auto accident just prior to the incident on a bridge at Chappaquiddick, but a Kennedy spokesman Thursday labeled the charge ``preposterous.'' In a book released Thursday to Washington media, author Kenneth Kappel said previously overlooked evidence indicates that Kennedy may have pushed his black Oldsmobile off the Dyke Bridge. On the night of J , Kennedy, t drove his car off a narrow wooden bridge on Chappaquiddick Island, just off of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. He escaped.   The classic by master nonfiction author Jack Olsen. Updated ebook file October And on its surface, the Chappaquiddick Incident (as it has infamously become known) was a simple but tragic traffic accident/5(80). — There is no evidence that Kennedy was not in the car when it plunged off the bridge, as theorized first in Jack Olsen’s book, “The Bridge at Chappaquiddick,” and adopted later by a number of other writers.

Mary Jo Kopechne was an only child Books about the incident include Jack Olsen’s The Bridge at Chappaquiddick () and Leo Damore’s Senatorial Privilege () Mary Jo Kopechne’s death was overshadowed in national news by the Apollo 11 moon mission, which had launched on 17 July and which culminated in Neil Armstrong‘s moon walk on 20 July. J A car driven by Senator Edward M. Kennedy plunged off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island, off the coast of Cape Cod. Mary Jo Kopechne, a year-old former staffer for Kennedy’s brother Robert, died in the crash.   If anyone ever truly deserved a Profiles in Courage Award, it was the late Leo Damore, the author of the book “Senatorial Privilege: The Chappaquiddick Cover-Up.”.

  And after the crash, Kennedy walked miles ( kilometers) from Dike Bridge back to the cottage on Chappaquiddick Isle without ever stopping for help at any of the residences — or the fire station — he passed along the way. And it became clear after Kopechne's body was recovered that had the police been called immediately, she may have.
