Midlothian Turnpike

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Midlothian Turnpike

Drivers on the turnpike have reported phantom cars and trucks that appear suddenly, causing the drivers to swerve. Phantom gang activity also has been seen, involving car chases full of gangsters shooting at each other with tommy guns. Some drivers have collided with the ghostly vehicles, even hearing shattered glass and tearing metal. But when they got out of the car, they were startled to find the other vehicle gone and no damage to their own. What’s driving these phantoms mad? Some say the reason is that the turnpike runs through the very haunted Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery.

  1. I stayed at Southwown Inn in Markham Ill. And while I was there a ghost was in my room while me and friend were taking selfish he hit the button on my phone and caught his hand in the pic.

  2. Back in the early 80s, l drove from Riverdale to Crestwood on 138th St. and came upon an old guy at an intersection near a junkyard. He was driving a fifties car, and was wearing suspenders over his shirt and a fedora. I slowed down to let him turn, even waved him on, and he just sat there at the stop sign, so l went by. I was a little peeved he didn’t even acknowledge me. When l looked in my rearview mirror to see if he finally decided to go, he was gone. It gave me the willies, and l mentioned it later to my grandmother. She laughed and said, maybe it was a ghost. Funny. I have since read of sightings of old cars that just disappeared along this stretch of road.
