Beware of Hitchhikers in Greensboro
In Greensboro, there is an old, overgrown underpass that has been dubbed Lydia’s Bridge. On rainy nights, drivers have said they see a young woman in a white evening gown on the side of the road trying to flag down a passing car for a ride home. Over the years, many drivers have claimed to give her a ride, and every time the story is the same. She climbs into the back seat of the car and says that her name is Lydia and that she has been to a dance. She gives an address not too far away and for the rest of the ride stays quiet, but looks concerned. When the driver stops to let her out, she’s no longer there and has essentially vanished into thin air. Because she’s a ghost, obviously. See, Lydia died in a car crash on her way home from a high-school dance. And her mother, heartbroken, never left the house after. They say she stayed in every night until she died, waiting for her daughter to come back home.
