Maud Hughes Road has a haunted bridge known to locals as the Screaming Bridge. Locals say it has been the site of at least 36 deaths through accidents and suicides. Witnesses have reported apparitions, mists, hooded figures, strange lights, and a phantom train on the tracks below. There are many, many legends about the place. One tells of a man and woman whose car stalled on the bridge. The man got out to look at it and when he came back, the girl had been hanged from the bridge. The man then was killed as well, and both their screams are heard here. Another legend says a baby was thrown off the bridge and its mother hanged herself her afterward. Yet another tale is that a school bus driver lost control and all the children on the bus were killed.
