The Reputed History:
- Several years
ago a young girl driving home from prom was
killed when her red car veered off the bridge.
- Another version of the story is that it
was a beautiful prom queen named "Jenny" who lost her life on the bridge. On prom night twenty years ago, Jenny was driving
home after a night of partying. She was drunk, and lost
control of her pickup truck resulting in a fatal accident.
- According to
longtime residents, nobody, least of all a prom queen, was ever killed in a car
accident at the bridge.
- Headlights, taillights, and inside
lights will sometimes fail to function on your car.
- The interior of your car will become
ice cold, no matter how high you turn up the heat.
- The old red car (in other versions it
is a pickup truck) of the girl killed on
prom night can be seen still driving the road.
- An odometer check from county road H to
the bridge reveals a time/space warp. The distance
from the bridge to H is longer than the distance measured
from H to the bridge.
- The headlights of
phantom cars will appear and disappear on the road nearby.
- Phantom cars will chase
you or play chicken with you as you drive down the road.
- The Dare: It is said that if you look into the
water while going over the bridge, you might catch a glimpse
of her headlights shining through the dark churning water.
- An odometer
check revealed that the distance to and from the bridge is
1.9 miles both ways.
- No phantom
cars or headlights were observed.
- No headlights
were observed in the water near the bridge.
