Highway 11 in Decatur, Alabama

In September, 1934, Lonnie Stephens was falsely accused of murdering his girlfriend. It was not until after Stephens’ death that the real killer had confessed. After escaping a chain gang, Stephens attempted to get a ride hitchhiking when he was struck and killed by a car. Now, his ghost can be seen in the middle of the road, trying to flag a car down for a ride. His arms can be seen out-stretched, and cars often pass through him, much to the driver’s shock.
