  1. My daddy drives a truck so I know the story. Supposedly a lady got into an arguement with her husband at the dragstrip on a foggy night and left for home by herself. When she got near the road a coal truckdriver hit and killed her. They say that she haunted that stretch of highway stepping up on the side of trucks and peering in the window of the cab looking for the man that hit her. Years later the driver that hit her confessed and she stopped looking for him.

  2. I found this website trying to do research to see what actually happened on Highway 5 in Alabama. I have never been one to believe in ghost but I have experienced this particular one. before I experienced this I had never heard of this ghost story.after my experience I talked to another trucker that was familiar with that area and he told me all about it

  3. My daddy told me the story about this and he told me that one night that one of his friends was on the road and he came down this one real late at night and he told me that his friend stopped the truck because he seen a woman standing in the middle of the road and she was just starring at the truck and my dad said that the women kept getting closer then all of a sudden the women appeared in front of his gear shift looking up at him to see if it was the trucker who had hit her his friend was so scared that the next day his hair was completely white from being scared to death i thought my dad was pulling my leg
