THE INFORMANT WAS DRIVING NEAR A RAILROAD TRESTLE WHEN SHE
SAW SOME LIGHTS, SO SHE DROVE ONTO A FIELD WHERE THE GHOST
GOT INTO THE BACK SEAT OF HER CAR ALONG WITH HER SISTER.
THE GHOST WAS A GIRL WITH NO HEAD. STORY HAS IT THAT SHE
WAS HIT BY THE TRAIN AND IS STILL LOOKING FOR HER HEAD.
SHE HAS A BAD HABIT OF GETTING INTO CARS THAT ARE PASSING
BY. AS FAR AS I KNOW, THIS IS STILL GOING ON.
