Nice to be back. Wonder who I made "ill" with me back in 2009...at 67 am lucky to recall what I had for dinner 2 days ago. Guess some folks will have to explain it to me as I have no clue.

At Evergreen Alabama a section of this modern thruway is supposedly haunted. Engineers built the highway over sacred Creek Indian burial grounds. The hills around Evergreen remain the Creek'ss spititual home, and many bbelieve that their ghosts haunt the whiteman's highway that runs through the middlle of it. Between 1984 and 1990, there were 519 accidents, 208 injuries, and twenty-three deaths on this forty mile stretch of highway. The road is even, straight, and well maintained.
After hearing about this my entire life, I purposely drove to this section of I-65 to investigate it. (Live about 30 miles away) I was expecting to see sharp curves, broken roadways, anything to explain all the accidents that have occured. Which your statictics are 100% correct on the amount of accidents that have occured. I honestly found nothing that should logically be causing all these wrecks. Of course, I'm not very knowledgable in road works but I know what to look out for to not wreck. Odd occurances on that piece of I-65. I try to avoid it.
