Chappaquiddick Island

Chappaquiddick Island is a small island off the eastern end of the larger island of Martha’s Vineyard and is part of the town of Edgartown, Massachusetts. The island became internationally recognized following the July 18, 1969 incident, where the car of U.S. Senator Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy was accidentally driven off the island’s Dike Bridge, which fatally trapped his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne, inside.
