Weird things happen in the hills of North Carolina that you will never know a thing about until you experience it yourself.

On an old road in Nantahala, North Carolina there have been many ghost sightings and trembling happenings up in those woods and on that road but not anything like this one...

One September night I was driving along Old River Road to take my friend back to his home up in the Nantahala woods, there are many bridges along this road but there is one in particular that has it's own personality. I came upon the last bridge on the road and it is the longest of them all. All of a sudden my car completely shuts off and the lights go out. I tried to crank my car over and over again but nothing would happen, it wouldn't even make a sound. I was right in the middle of this bridge and I was scared to death.

I looked into my rear view mirror and saw an old woman in a rocking chair rocking back and forth with this evil look on her face. I was shocked, and completely terrified and didn't know what to do. She dissapeared after about ten minutes and my car started up again. I sped off as fast as my car could go. When I reached my home I called my friend and told him what had happened.Turns out many years ago an old woman was walking down that road late one night and a car came across that bridge and hit her, and killed her, and now she haunts anyone who drives over that bridge at night time. It has happened to more than just me so don't drive that road late at night.

This story is not a legend or a lie. It really happened and if you don't believe me go give it a try. She was killed on a Friday night February the 13th so every February the 13th she is waiting on that bridge for whoever crosses. You can also just go on any night and get directly in the middle of the bridge and shut off your car and wait about ten minutes and she will pop up somewhere in your car and you can try all you want but your car will not start and you won't be able to move... So go ahead and try it if you're daring enough!

I'm never trying that. NEVER. I get scared kinda easy. So when you (story writer) wrote this true story, I was like "I'm never going on any bridge in that part of North/South Carolina!
