Another ghostly experience on Gladstone Benaraby Rd

ANOTHER driver has had a ghostly experience along Gladstone Benaraby Rd, following a sighting in March in which police were called.

A woman yesterday posted on a number of local Facebook pages, saying she had been driving from Tannum Sands to Gladstone just before 11am.

"On the corner just before boat ramp I saw a woman, dark hair, white shirt, black bottoms on side of road," she wrote.

"As I got closer she disappeared. I was trying to look for her and heard swishing noises against the back of my seat.

"As I looked in my rear vision mirror, I saw a figure in my back seat.

"I swerved as it gave me a huge fright, and I apologise to any oncoming traffic, but I pulled over quickly to check and rang a girlfriend in panic as I was not sure what I had just witnessed.

"This scared me a lot and I'm still a bit shaky."

On March 21, Gladstone-Benaraby Rd was shut for almost half an hour after police received mysterious reports of a woman wandering across the road.

One driver said they almost ran the woman over and another said she had been crying and walking erratically up the road.

The officers confirmed they had seen the woman, but by the time the car had u-turned she had disappeared.

Other Gladstone residents shared similar stories after the incident.

Gladstone woman Karli Hobley said 12 months ago she was driving to Tannum Sands with her mum and saw a woman staggering down the same road at 2am.

"I didn't see her face because she was walking the same way we were driving," Ms Hobley said.

"But she had her knees bent in. It looked painful. The way she was walking I thought she was drunk.

"We stopped to see if she needed help, but she had already disappeared.

A former resident shared her story of a ghostly sighting along the road in 2003, which still sends shivers down the spine of her and the friend she was with at the time.

"We saw a woman standing beside the road and wondered what she was doing," the former resident said.

"We wondered if we should stop, but we were too scared. We called the cops and reported it straight away.

"It was really eerie. That's why we didn't stop.

"She looked real. We thought it was a person, but something about her, we knew wasn't right."
