U.S. Highway 40, Cambridge, Ohio

This highway is said to be haunted by two headless ghosts.  One is a construction worker who was working to build the highway.  He was robbed and murdered by a fellow laborer, and his decapitated body was buried under the road. His ghost is still seen by motorists traveling the highway on a stretch of the road called Deep Cut, which lies between Cambridge and Old Washington. 

The other spirit is a woman who lived in a cabin near the old trail in the late 1890s.  She was beheaded by her husband during a violent argument.  Soon after, her headless apparition was seen riding sidesaddle on a white horse.  She has come to be known as Lady Bend.  Lady Bend is seen on the highway at Lady Bend Hill on the third bend from the top.
