THE HAUNTED STREET

ONCE THERE WAS AN ACCIDENT IN WHICH A MAN WAS HIT BY A CAR AND
KILLED. WHENEVER ANYONE PASSED OVER THE SPOT WHERE HE WAS KILLED,
SOMETHING WOULD KNOCK ON THE CAR.

Submitter comment: THE INFORMANT HEARD THIS STORY FROM AN IRISH GIRL SHE WORKS WITH
NAMED MARY COYNE. MARY CLAIMED THAT SHE HAD HEARD THIS STORY BACK
IN IRELAND ABOUT SEVEN YEARS AGO AND SHE CLAIMED THAT IT WAS A TRUE
STORY. I HAVE INCLUDED IT, ALTHOUGH IT IS WIDESPREAD IN THE U.S.,
BECAUSE OF HER CLAIM THAT SHE HEARD IT IN IRELAND.
