Note: For more information about this and other ghost lights, check out my book The True Ghost Stories Archive: Spooklights, available on Amazon in ebook and paperback. Below is a condensed version of the chapter in the book.
Location: Mena, Arkansas
Appearance: A glowing light that crosses the highway.
- The light is the spirit of a young girl who froze to death while trying to fetch water for her sick family.
Other explanations: None.
Additional notes: This ghost light is very obscure and more of a traditional haunting than a stereotypical spooklight.
“One night I saw a glowing light cross the highway in front of my car about seventy-five yards in front of me. It was during summer and I thought that maybe it was someone needing help on the side of the road, but it came down a steep bank and crossed in front of me and then went off the other side of the road in a place that no one could have walked down without killing themselves. I pulled my car to the side of the road and carefully got out and called out to see if it was really someone. When I didn’t receive an answer, I got into my car and turned around to leave.” – John, July 2000
