Have any of you ever heard of the Urban Legend about a lady (either school age or a little older) who can be picked up on a bridge. The story varies, I believe one of the variations is that her car broke down, another I think is she was walking home from a school dance where her night didn't go so well. The Urban Legend says that she will disappear from your backseat before you reach her home, one variation is that a man went all the way to her home after noticing she was gone from the car and he went to the door and knocked. The mother explained that her daughter had been dead for a few years and how it happened, though how it happened I don't quite remember, I believe it had something to do with a wreck on said bridge. The think about this urban legend is that it's everywhere, no one place is specified to my knowledge. Have you heard of this one, and what do you think?

Yes, I have heard a couple of variations on this urban legend. I've even seen in used in a couple of movies, and one TV show that I can recollect. As for what do I think? I think it's creepy. Did you mean do I think it is real?

Whatever you think about it really, but yes actually that is a good question do you think it's real? What movies? Was it in Urban Legends? I don't remember.

I've also heard this stories, I even got it from my inbox. Its really goosebumps stories for me. No wonder that stories has passed from years to years now. As far as I remember the place where she always show and try to hitch a car is now consider as one of the scariest place.

I am not quite sure that I had ever heard a specific town but I may have, well it's considered one of the scariest? Hmm, I am sure as that is a bit frightening!

I remember reading this and I swore I responded to it but I don't see a response here lol so I guess I didn't. Yes I agree spirits do walk among us, and it's not far fetched to believe that somewhere at some point this did happen.

This is a popular ghost story that has been circulating for years. I heard it more than twenty years ago and it may even be older than that.

I wouldn't doubt it if it was older then that. I just wonder where these kind of stories originate from.

I don't remember where I've heard it originate from, and then again it may not have originated here in the USA.

I have heard so many such stories. Since ages such stories are handed over from one generation to another. I sincerely hope you don't disappear from my backseat, if at all if I give you a lift when I see you on the bridge.

If I were to disappear meapas, it would be by magic only. I know these types of stories have been around for quite sometime, I wish there was a way to retrace the original storyteller, but I don't know that there is.

Urban legends come from somewhere. I have also heard a story of the Lady In White that is seen by an old cemetary in New York. And, ofcourse, there is the true story from the song called Laurie. This is said to have actually happened. And in my area there is the Urban legend of the Hatchet Man.

OH yes I've heard of that and there was this series on TV that had a series of urban ledgends on it and this was one of them. I can't remember the name of the series, but know it was used before. Red Shoe Diaries? For some reason that doesnt' sound right, but at the end of the show they tell you if it was a true story or an urban ledgend. Can only help out with the series' name here?

I have read this in an Urban Legends book (did you know they had such a thing?) but I have not run into people who have claimed this one. I have, however, run into the one about Hookman's Road. Have you?

Hi, SomeCowgirl. I have heard of this story before. I think that this is a local story here in South Carolina. Sometimes, I would get very scared and I would be riding in a car at night. And, I think about this woman waiting on the side of the road. This makes me very scared. If, I saw something like this, I know that I would be scared out of my wits. I wonder if people can catch onto this girl's apparation. I mean, they can take a look at how her hair is styled and the type of dress that she has worn. This could tell a person right then and there that she is dressed as if this is the 1950s. I know that I would be able to tell. Especially if her skin glows or she looks very pale. I would never pick up someone on the side of the road.
