Surprisingly truck drivers are witnesses to unexplainable and mysterious events on the highway, and their stories abound for things that they just can't explain. Some have seen animal human-like things, straight out of urban myth stories running across the road among other things.
A truck driver describes the mystery of the vanishing driver:
You're cruising down the Interstate, and you happen to pass a four-wheeler. You get well clear, and pull back over into the "Granny" lane (travel lane to non-drivers). Twenty, maybe thirty seconds pass and you're sweeping your mirrors, and you suddenly realize that the four-wheeler that should be right behind you is gone. Vanished!
The Legend of the Phantom Hitchhiker is retold like this:
The story I want to tell you is one of those that many dismiss as an urban legend. Maybe you've heard of it as the Phantom Hitchhiker, Resurrection Mary, or the Lady in White. These stories certainly do get around, embellished, and altered from place to place and time to time. The general gist is that someone is driving down the road when they see someone walking along the berm. In some of the stories the person simply vanishes. Sometimes, they say that the person vanishes only to reappear sitting in the back seat of the car.
A truck driver retells the story of the woman in yellow:
Southern New England is a hell hole for the truck driver. Roads are old and narrow. They twist and turn along seeming paved cow paths. Traffic is heavy and the drivers are aggressive. Combine this with parking lots designed to maximize green space while making it impossible for a truck to get to the loading dock without running over curbs and endangering parked cars and loading docks that were designed when trucks were under 48 feet long; let's just say that simply doing your job in New England is tricky.
This is the story about the jogger in blue:
That experience would have been a good story even if nothing further happened, but Massachusetts wasn't finished with me. It was more than a year later that I would go for round two, but I would have a second experience in that very same location.
