Just ten miles southwest of Syracuse, New York, lies Cedarvale Road (a.k.a 13 Curves Road). It is said that over sixty years ago, a pair of newlyweds were driving along the winding stretch. Upon taking one of the curves too sharply, the car careened into the creek nearby. Some legends claim that both had lost their lives in the accident, while others say it was merely the groom. Whatever the case may be, it is not unusual for those travelling at night to come across the forlorn bride.
Multiple accounts of sightings describe her as wearing her bloodied gown and lurking near the sixth curve of the road. Sometimes, she is spotted carrying a lantern and simply searching through the darkness. Other instances recall her standing among the hills that line the highway. The most unfortunate souls to encounter this phantom have even had her suddenly appear in their backseat, bloody face gazing at them from the rearview mirror.
The town of Onondoga enjoys keeping the story alive, encouraging anyone passing through to take a trip down the road, especially on Halloween. So, if you're ever in the area, make sure to take a slight detour and check it out for yourself. You never know what you might see!
