Indiana needed a post today.....


Copied from Halifax - West Yorkshire's Supernatural Earth web site owned by Madmart in the UK.


Location: Evansville, Indiana

Cross streets: NB U.S. Highway 41 "The Dixie Bee Line" and Washington Avenue


Your thoughts on this will be appreciated after your slow scroll down this short page,......  Or no thoughts will still count as one view.  

I thought to tell this last night: It's one of my accurate perceptions related to a traffic accident killing two older ladies colliding with a semi (lorry) tractor trailer loaded with Georgia, USA granite tombstone blanks.

I trucked livestock through Evansville, Indiana that had built the U.S. 41 By-Pass with stop lights at every intersection. All that money was wasted and all those homes were demolished for the big change for traffic in a so called by pass. 2.5 years went by with the occasional wrecks.

In 1976 at 10:30 pm granite tombstone blanks were coming North! Well into the city at the 4th intersection the lorry hit a car as the Georgia driver with the "stones" ran a red light! Bam!!! The car and it's two occupants were moved over 100 feet into a fence line at a school.

The trucker went to jail held for manslaughter. The news was big on the cities 1st fatalities on the "New By-pass"! The next day was Friday when I went for more trips to the market back to the meat packer. I saw the wrecked lorry on a wrecker being weighed at a state scales North of the city. I learned later his lorry and tombstones (strapped & chained down and visible on top) was not over the weight limits. When I saw it I could not believe he was illegally over 73,280 lbs, and now it's 80,000 lbs.

Saturday morning at daylight I got home. My late ex-wife said her mother's friend who knew one of the deceased ladies said Thursday was their regular night out at a hotel's bar.

I called the big city's police station. I first said, "Officer (Desk Sergeant) did your EPD check the blood alcohol content of the two ladies?" He wasn't saying he knew anything of that nature, but added the trucker was in big trouble. I made another statement that he scoffed at. I said, "Thank you. I'll call the Evansville Press newspaper!"

The reporter was like a human sponge absorbing my introductory words. He said, "Hang up the phone and I will call you back on our dime." The phone rang and I said quickly, "I believe both vehicles were ignoring a red light!" The ladies, after a drink or two, were turning left on red knowing a right turn was legal on red was a new state law. I dealt with this illegal left turning across my path nearly nightly! They turned across that International CO4000 lorry's path as he ran a yellow to red light.

Then the Press paper investigated this and witnesses could not verify the light color for the ladies. In Saturday evenings Evansville Press newspaper I read what the city's law prosecutor said, "In this case two wrongs don't make a right". The Georgia trucker was released that day!



I've driven a lorry over 50 years and you tend to look at other loads transported. That had to be the only load of granite tombstone blanks I'd ever seen. There may have been 20 on top as a guess. The various shapes of the stones were obvious in their use! Used only in the afterlife as a purchased record of one's existence!

I wonder where all those Georgia granite tombstones shaped and inscribed so perfectly are now? I believe this was an afterlife story. After two lives were lost unnecessarily!

Don't drink and drive, never more!

This non paranormal but spooky true accident account is movin' on up views wise.

In the few UK paranormal forums that I contribute to and moderate I just thank the frequent and very bashful guests for upping the view count.

Now back to The Floydian Slip on line radio program being broadcasted out of St. Cloud, MN on 103.7 FM The Loon.

Pink Floyd's "Sorrow" from their live album A Delicate Sound of Thunder is playing now. To me it's one of the scariest songs EVER in the history of rock and roll!

Two more deaths yesterday @ U.S. 41 & Washington Ave.!

Sadness strikes northbound U.S. Highway 41 and Washington Avenue again yesterday on the 9th!

At 1:30 pm a Beacon Transport semi-truck and trailer was going through a green light when a large sedan with two occupants ran their red light!

Oddly the westbound sedan passed cars on their left side while waiting at the red light! Witnesses told the news that they could hear the passenger screaming for the driver to wake up. The driver was seen with his or her head back stiff arming the steering wheel! Both occupants were killed after hitting the trailer's center under carriage taking the top off the sedan.

That intersection was opened to traffic at 6:15 pm.

Sadly the destroyed car looked like the large sedan without it's top in Smokey and The Bandit.

Channel 25's news anchor did not mention the wreck with two deaths from long ago.


Updated via this mornings Evansville Courier:

This accident is under investigation at this time.

The driver may have had a seizure or heart attack and his passenger was steering the speeding Lexus* around the stopped traffic at the busy intersection. Both were young males over twenty years old. 

Unless making deliveries all large trucks with trailers should be required to by-pass these stop lights and take I-164 soon to be I-69. Hazardous material transporters should have been required to go around this city years ago!

Our state capital of Indianapolis requires all HM transporters to take I-465!

* Lexus is one of Toyota's many brand names and let's hope the accelerator did not stick wide open!
