This story appears to be famous worldwide as one of the most gruesome highway incidents. whether it involves a ghost, or an actual murderer, no one really knows. This story here was copied from a website (read the source below) based on Malaysia's own Karak Highway. Though I've changed the ending to what I believed happened but the content still stays the same.
Road to Karak
It was late at night when a young couple and their baby was traveling in a car along the Karak Highway. They were trying to get home, like the rest of the other Malaysians because it was nearing festive season. And like the many other Malaysians, they choose to travel at night to avoid the traffic jam and also the heat of the sun when noon gets in the way.
As they were traveling along the lonely stretch of Karak Highway, suddenly, the car gave a sudden jerk and started making weird noises. The husband was fairly surprised because he remembered to check the car before traveling long distance to ensure the safety of his family. Soon, they had no choice but to stop by the roadside. The husband got out of the car to check the car engine while his wife and baby was waiting in the car. After a few minutes, he came back and reported that he could not see anything wrong and tried starting the car again. However, the car just would not budge. At loss, the husband made a difficult decision to either wait until another car comes along or walk to the nearest phone booth.
Not wanting to leave his family behind, they waited. After some 20 minutes or so, the highway remained quiet. The husband wondered why was there such calamity on the highway when festive celebrations are just around the corner. Perhaps it was due to the late night, he thought to himself. After what seemed like eternity, the husband decided to take the second option.
Advising his wife to lock the doors and take care, he left them behind with a heavy heart. His wife, on the other hand, watched her husband walk away with worries on her mind. She prayed hard that someone would eventually notice their stalled car and offer help. She was also worried that accidents might happen.
Hours passed by and soon she started getting even more worried. She was worried something might happen to her husband.
Suddenly she saw flashes of blue and red lights. It was coming from a patrol car. Through the rear view mirror she could see a policeman getting out of the car and towards her vehicle. They asked her to step out of the vehicle quietly, and don't look around while she did so.
She got out of the car and walked towards the police car with the man. When she was at a safe distance, she finally looked back towards her car to see the bodiless head of her husband on top of her car. Apparently it had been banged against the roof of her car but she did not notice.
There are a lot of rumors why Karak Highway is very haunted. Some people claim that it's because there's a lot of accidents and deaths. Others believe that a certain stretch of Karak Highway was built over an old cemetary or an old plot of land that was already haunted to begin with.
Some said that the reason why these ghosts are so agressive is because they're angry spirits. Apparently what made them angry was the tow-truck people.
The highway sometimes looks scary and gloomy
Normally they are one of the first to arrive at an accident scene (of course accidents do happen on normal circumstances). When there are deaths at the scene, they would "do things" to the spirits in order to do "business" so they can earn money or get rich. (I'm thinking maybe they get them to produce a winning 4D number?)
But at the same time, what the tow-truck people are doing is like putting salt or lime juice on an open wound to them. That is his belief on why the place is aggresively haunted and like to attack people whenever they can.
Anybody else have any contributions to this urban legend?
