The most realistic story about Weary Road of Evansville Wisconsin involves teenagers “car surfing”, not slowing down for a curve in time and being killed when they were ejected off the vehicle into a steep ditch or the creepy treeline. Another involves more teens playing chicken on one of the longer stretches of road (pictured) by driving at each other at speed with the lights off, and wrecking head on when they misjudge the length of road. It’s pretty popular today for younger generations to repeat this, though doing some research I haven’t found any evidence of car wrecks. There have been reports of phantom motorcycles, cars and trains (Chicago-Northwestern tracks cross the north portion of road.), dark figures and imps passing in front of or behind vehicles traveling the road late at night, green glowing near the bridge, screams and inhuman sounds, scratches showing up on bodies, if you stop your car on the bridge the car won’t start back up again (this happened to me personally in my brand new car full of people, 2008), sightings of a ghostly girl in the woods, “Mr. Weary” making appearances on the road at night (supposedly after visiting 3 or more times).
