As always, we ask ourselves: what could cause such events? Well, there are several different theories which could possibly explain the strange occurrences. Firstly, some say such events are mainly caused by strong magnetic fields in this area as well as subterrean waters. However, others believe in the legend about the old widow in black. According to the legend, the widowed woman managed to outlive several generations of her neighbors with the help of different potions. Allegedly, she is the one haunting the specific highway. Moreover, probably the most famous theory is the one stating that the highway was built on the old graveyard. Allegedly, the tombstones were moved to the new cemetery but the corpses stayed underground due to the reason that it was too expensive and too complicated to move all corpses to a new cemetery. Therefore, the road was just built over the graves which allegedly disturbed the deceased.
