The Ghosts of Highway 666

Highway 666 is a road that runs from Utah, through New Mexico to Southwestern Colorado. The section of the highway that’s runs through New Mexico is supposedly a place of many spirits that haunt motorists daily. This is not surprising due to the fact that the number of Satan as written in the bible is 666. An apparition of a car apparently drives motorists off the road, only on nights with a full moon, a crazed man in a tractor trailer tries to run people over, and a pack of ghost dogs have allegedly run across cars and cut the tires with these sharp teeth.
The most known legends and stories told about this section of the highway are the ghost hitchhikers. Two examples of these occurrences are one girl tries to get cars to stop for her, and when they do stop she vanishes. Another girl runs across the highway in front of cars and when the car is about to hit, she vanishes as well.
These ghosts out on this road don’t seem too friendly at all, and quite frankly I think if I ever do find myself in New Mexico, I’ll pass on the possible catastrophe that these ghosts cause. Drive at your own risk!
