Don’t Drive On This Haunted Street In Alabama Or You May Regret It

When it comes to hauntings, Alabama has definitely seen its fair share. From spooky mansions and eerie factories, to creepy hotels and haunted cemeteries, there’s no telling where you’ll spot a ghost in Alabama. You might even have a ghostly encounter while driving down one of Alabama’s state highways. One highway in particular that’s supposedly haunted is Highway 5, which is located in Lynn, Alabama.

Here’s how the story goes:

Many years ago, on a rainy night in Lynn, Alabama, a teenage girl was on her way home from prom with her boyfriend. Shortly after leaving prom, they got into an argument and the girl asked her boyfriend to stop and let her out. He did exactly as she requested, and she walked the rest of the way home alone. Unfortunately, the teenage girl never made it to her destination. While walking along the side of Highway 5, she was struck by an 18-wheeler. The driver of the truck left the scene and the teenage girl was discovered the following morning in a ditch. Supposedly, if you drive an 18-wheeler down Highway 5 on a rainy night, she’ll climb onto the side of the truck to see if the driver is the same one who killed her many years ago.

Several truck drivers have reported this happening to them. Even people driving other types of vehicles have reported seeing the teenage girl’s ghostly figure walking along the side of the highway. Creepy!
