Ghosts Aren’t Just for Houses: List of Top 5 Most Haunted Roads Released
Apparently some ghosts have taken their shows to the road ... and this list will tell you just which roads to avoid if you don’t want to hear anything go bump in the night on your next drive.
First up, Belchen Tunnel, Switzerland. It looks creepy enough. It gets better … or worse. Apparently, this Swiss road is haunted by an old lady. According to one report, two women actually claimed to have picked up the old lady and she told them “something dreadful was going to happen.” Then, with her message delivered, she disappeared.
Not scary enough? Let’s try Stocksbridge Road, also known as “Killer Road.” Located in the United Kingdom, there have been numerous ghost sightings reported … and there’s more than one ghost. There’s the ghost of a monk who likes to show up on the bridge on Stocksbridge Road. Then there are the ghost children (aren’t those always the scariest?). Some of the sightings of these ghost children actually come from security guards, who said they saw children playing on the road late one night … but the kids disappeared before the guards could reach them. Workmen on the road have reported hearing children singing in the night.
But let’s bring it a little closer to home with Highway 666 in the United States. Here there have been reports of phantom speeding cars – including a flaming, demonic semi-truck that reportedly drives directly toward spooked travelers – as well as packs of devil dogs. Also, people tend to disappear from this stretch of road, losing their sense of time and sometimes aren’t found until days later. The name was changed from Highway 666 to 491, and, strangely enough, accidents did decrease … but it is still known as America’s “Highway to Hell.”
Then there’s Tuen Mun Road in Hong Kong. There is a disproportionately high number of motor vehicle accidents on this road and people there blame the local ghosts. Apparently, these spirits appear suddenly, right in front of a driver, forcing the him or her to swerve and inevitably crash. Furthermore, just to guarantee there is never a shortage, people say that each new car accident fatality results in a new ghost haunting the road.
But if you are looking for a little more personal interaction from your ghostly encounters, try Clinton Road (above) in New Jersey at the Old Boy Bridge. If you toss a coin in he water below, the spirit of a boy who drowned there will toss it back up to you. And if that isn’t creepy enough, people traveling Clinton Road have also seen UFOs, mutated circus animals and mysterious glowing eyes.
