A couple driving along this stretch of Route 85 (called Crater Range, about ten miles north of Ajo, AZ) in the 1950s, on their way to their honeymoon in Lake Tahoe, were killed when their car struck a rock on the side of the road. Locals swear that if you drive this stretch of road after midnight you can see the couple and their car on the side of the road. Often they will try to get you to stop and help them.

  1. As a child we drove to and from Ajo and Gila Bend. Along that stretch I would see late at night headlights appear out of nowhere and disappear in that vicinity. My uncle actually had encounter in this same area. Twice. He never stopped there again at night. Once he said he was intoxicated and decided he could drive home from Ajo to Gila Bend. Found himself unfit to drive he pulled over. He said he started to doze off when he heard a female saying I need help can you give me a ride. Knowing he was alone in the vehicle he shrugged it off. He then looked in the rear view mirror and saw her, he looked back saw no one turned back and she was in the rearview. He blamed the alcohol, looked back and upon realizing there was no one there physically he said he got scared sober and tore out of there. The second time it happened he had a flat and she appeared again to ask him for a ride. Told him she had been there a long time. He said she climbed in back seat, as he drove off he was barely out of the area. He looked back to speak and foundn no one there. Up until he passed he would tell us don’t pull over there and don’t pull over for headlights that appear out of nowhere.
