Highway 11W in Grainger County, TN is legendary for 'sightings', and no wonder- Many, many people have been killed on this particular stretch of highway. Up until recently, it was a very narrow, two-lane highway that carried a huge amount of traffic over the mountains via Highway 11W. Much of the traffic consisted of huge smei-trucks carrying materials over the mountains. Also, much of the traffic moved at very high speeds - so when something went wrong, it was usually disastrous. It's recorded in the news in Grainger County's "Grainger Today" that a terrible pile up, one vehicle a large bus, crashed - tearing the bus apart and throwing bodies up and down the highway. Officers and those responding to the scene reported a crash of catastrophic proportions.
I myself and my husband saw something on this road I CANNOT explain.
We were coming up the highway in broad daylight in early morning, and has we were driving up the highway, ( which has now been made into a four-lane), we came around a slight curve going up the mountain, and in the distance on OUR side of the median was a huge red semi-truck - it was driving straight toward us on the inside lane of the highway. My husband couldn't believe what he was seeing - but we could both see it, it was about nine in the morning - there were no other cars or trucks in front of or behind us...so we start to panic and while we were looking at it, it disappeared!
I'm not sure what that was about, but I heard also from a friend after this experience that he thought he almost hit a man in the road coming back at night from work - He saw this guy almost standing IN the road waving his arms around like he needed help. When my friend stopped and jumped out, there was no one there. He said it was really weird and couldn't explain how someone who waved him down could disappear into nowhere. You can also catch orbs and weird mists taking pictures up and down this highway.
