Texas Road Ghost?


Living in Windsor, Ontario, we always heard the rumours of the creepy Texas Rd., situated about 20 minutes from Windsor in Amherstburg.

One mild October night four of us piled into my '71 Torino and decided to cruise to Texas Rd. It was close to midnight, and believe me, it was dark as could be, and there was a light fog on the road.

We were cruising at a low speed with the windows rolled down. The cemetery was ahead about 50 feet when all of a sudden a headless object darted across the road. We all screamed and I gunned the car as pebbles and rocks kicked up as I fishtailed down the dirt road until we finally interesected at a paved road (Howard Avenue) everybody was still in frenzy about what had happened. My buddy suggested we go back again to which we all disagreed. Five minutes later we were headed back for more punishment.

The fog was coming in thicker, and we were all frightened yet excited.

Just as we approached the cemetery we heard a loud wailing and then again, the headless object ran out from the graveyard wielding an axe.

Needless to say, we high-tailed it out of there. Nobody knows for sure what it was, but there was something on the road that night! Repeated visits to the road also provided other sightings and sounds. I am a firm believer that there are some strange things happening on the road even today.

That was a game the local kids would play. This was probally in the late 80s eraly-mid 90's?
Local kids knew that everyone would come at night to visit the haunted cemetary and they would run out at the cars and scare the hell out of city folk. This is the reason the cops eventually closed the road. I posted a bit about it in another texas road heading

Creepy! DeviousAngel, Who knows how it could make a sound without a head? Maybe it was the sound of its last breath escaping it, sorta like a lobster when you boil it. And also, TonySoprano60, Why is there a road called Texas Rd.? I live in texas so I was wondering. I guess its the same reason why we have a Colorado City and a Paris. 😁 😆

Very scary but I'm curious as to how one would scream without a head. I would imagine that would pose a few vocal problems, no? 😆

Not a bad story the thing weilding the axe was the Axe solid or was it spiritual just wanting clarification,

Also don't advise banising that thing unlest you want to bless your car and use it as an intrument of God? Possible but not advisable, Old roads have history and that one sounds like it has alot.

Thanks for the riviting tale.

Thanks For Sharing Your Story TonySoprano60 😁

😆 I'm surprized your friend wanted to go back. I mean its a one in a life time to see a headless man with an axe. I wouldn't say some strange things went on that night, I'd say something o-o but I don't really know what word to use.

Thanks Again GodBless

Sounds to me like the site has quite a history. Mix it with the cemetary near by you're probably going to have all sorts of different energys and spirits around. I think the best of us would have freaked out at that haha!

Thanks for sharing your story.

You should try finding out the history of that road, and make sure it wasn't just some pyscho guy, very scary though, would have freaked out as well.
