People still pick-up 'hitch-hikers'?
Seems like I recall that story when I was a kid (40+ years ago). I don't pick up hitch hikers anymore....so much for THAT ghost!

Reminds me of when I picked up a hitch-hiker. I picked up this woman on rt. 9. the woman told me she was a witch, I say rea right "well turn me into something". She turned me into a motel.

I too recall that myth. As a young man I would drive that route over and over again in hopes of picking her up and asking lots of questions.
Of course a myth is as much lying as it is recounting anything close to truth,
