I have a case with an interesting collection of road-ghost sightings. I have my own view on these (and no - its not ghosts!) but i would be interested in the thoughts and suggestions of others.
The apparition has been sighted many times over the last 40 years and i have direct eye-witness testimony for many of these sightings (around 5 - 7).
They have always happened at night (in the headlights) - with one exception which was at dusk (nearly dark but still in headlights). Descriptions are similar in that motorists describe either colliding with a girl, narrowly missing her, or seeing a distressed girl on the side of the road - some have gone to help her to find she is not there. So its always female.
However, she has been seen at various points in a 1000 metre section of the road - so not always the same place. Most witnesses knew nothing about the hautning at the time of seeing her and none of the witnesses were aware of the reputation on this stretch of road or indeed knew each other.
Two sightings were collective - where both people in the car reputedly saw the same thing on two separate occasions.
any initial thoughts? (Of course i know its difficult without knowing all the details - but lets just keep it to reasonable speculations)
