THE sighting of a mystery woman on Gladstone-Benarby Rd on Saturday night is giving people goosebumps hundreds of kilometres away.
And a second story about a sighting in 2003 has deepened the feeling, with the description of a woman seen then being similar to the description of a girl who lost her life along the stretch of road in the early 1990s.
The girl was driving along the road and lost control of her car, crashing off the side of the road and losing her life.
It's believed the steering wheel crushed her chest, and she lost a leg.
Her sister, who now lives in Far North Queensland, contacted The Observer for more details after seeing a link to the initial story on Facebook.
"It's very coincidental," the woman said. "It's the anniversary of my sister's death next week."
The woman's sister was 20 when she died, and had mid-length, layered blonde hair.
The crash happened between the Boyne Island turn-off and Gladstone.
The woman involved in the 2003 sighting described what she'd seen as being a "woman with blondey, silvery, mid-length hair. Lots of layers in the hair".
"It's very interesting. It's giving me goosebumps," the sister said.
"I believe there are other things out there, but I don't usually get goosebumps and that prickly feeling. I'm getting them now.
"It may be all just a coincidence, but for someone to come forward after all this time, it must have made an impact on them.
"For me, it's just the coincidence of the location and timing."
