    • Ricky Bell MY dad we lived up there, he was a trucker, & we knew of this well. We used to set & listen to the C.B. & hear truck Drivers freaking out on radio. I know some where put on but not all. I know a many of TRUCKERS that would bypass this section of hwy#5 because of the ghost woman & other things that always happened in that area.

  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.

    • That’s the story, but I never heard of him confessing? I do know I grew up there & Know what dad as a trucker driver experienced, because I was with him, & other drivers. Some drivers would go to hwy#13 to keep from going through this area on hwy#5. Which at that Time was way way outta the way & much longer.

  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

    • I know 30+ years I lived around there, & dad was a trucker. I had experiences in vehicles, & many unexplainable deaths due to big truck & car wrecks. I remember many wrecks, the driver would always say a woman or something appeared, as we on fire department rescued them.

  4. I remember when I was a small child riding with my mom and Dad on a trip while I was out of school. I’ve looked for this place alot since I’ve gotten older. My Dad has passed on now and my mom never knew the location. We were traveling through Alabama late one night, it was nasty raining and foggy. The hwy was narrow. We could see something up ahead because it was almost glowing. When we got to it, it was a woman in a long snow white dress that reached to the ground. It was raining and muddy, but she was so clean. She was standing on the edge of the road, like on the white line. She never did anything, just stood there. Never could see her in the side mirrors of the truck. A memory I will never forget.

  5. I GREW UP A COUPLE MILES SOUTH OF LYNN, RICKY BELL IS MY DAD & I KNOW FOR A FACT WHAT HE & ALL TRUCKERS HAVE TOLD ME ABOUT THIS, & IT’S TRUE IN MY OPINION. I HAVE HAD INCIDENTS WITH THIS AREA DEALING WITH #5 Ghostwoman to OUR LAND WHICH IS EXACTLY WHERE THIS GHOST WOMEN IS AS WELL IS HAUNTED BY INDIANS OR SOMETHING, SO WAS OUR HOUSE THAT BURNT UP IN NAUVOO, IT SOUNDED LIKE HELL AS IT BURNT, SCREAMING SCARY STUFF!! #ThaBellBrothers Jon & Myself know anything you need to know in this area!!
    WE CAN PROVE THERE’S MORE THAN JUST 1 GHOST, OR ENTITIEY!!
    SINCERELY,
    Jon Bell & Greg Bell #ThaBellBrothers··

  6. OH KNOW PF MANY TRUCKERS THAT WOULD BYPASS THIS SECTION OF#5Hwy & I grew up where this happened. My dad was a trucker, we used to listen to c.B. at night, because it was lonely on that road at night & still is but they would come on radio tripping out scared to death, seriously! That’s just the tip of the iceberg of the paranormal activity that happens around here! Vanishing people, people found mutilated, & worse, devil worshippers, & the area in the woods they done it, oh INDIANS haunt as well this Area!
    I have proof & people need to know these things, & get some closure!

  7. THIS IS SOMETHING WE EXPERIENCED GROWING UP, & I KNOW PEOPLE THAT ARE SCARED OF THIS, & WE KNOW ALL THE DETAILS & STORY’S THAT ARE REAL! WE LIVED IT!
    GOD PROTECTED US THOUGH, EVEN THOUGH MY DAD WAS IN A WRECK IN THIS AREA & DIED 3 TIMES & IS NOW IN NURSUNG HOME! HE KNOWS ALL ABOUT THIS GHOST WOMEN, & EVERYTHING ABOUT hwy#5

  8. My late husband drove truck . While I was on the truck with him I was told this story by another driver but I was told that her husband was the driver of the truck that hit her.
    I experienced her stepping on the side of the truck while we drove that section of highway. She looked in, looked at me smiled and disappeared. She made me almost jump out of my skin. Not funny at all.
    I have told my kids of this experience many times, which they did not believe until they read about it.
    Now they believe me…
