Ghost Story Comes To Life

If you're into ghost stories, this one seems fairly tame. In 1891, a passenger train derailed on a bridge near Statesville, North Carolina, killing approximately thirty people. The story claims that on the anniversary of the wreck, the sound of the crash and screaming passengers can be heard. A number of people come to the bridge for a chance to prove the legend each year. But this year, the story took an even more tragic turn when one of the "ghost hunters" was killed... by a train. You can read the details here.

Yup, no bout a doubt it! Ghosts made a flock of nut cases stand in the middle of a train trestle in the middle of the night so they could get run down. Bad, bad ghosties... now, go float in the corner over there and no ectoplasm for you tonight!

My mother brought this item to my attention. She was sitting at the kitchen table, smoking, surfing the net on her laptop and laughing like a loon. I asked what was so funny. She pointed to this article. You might think my mother is heartless, but you have to admit this story does have that kind of vibe where you catch yourself giggling even while you feel awful for that man and his family.

first rule of ghost hunting- never get so involved in looking for the ghosts that you miss seeing the real stuff! sad and stupid all at once.
