Legend has it that along Route 66 between Weatherford and El Reno, Oklahoma the ghost of an old, humpbacked man can be spotted. He wears a fedora and a trenchcoat and is most often reported on rainy or foggy nights. Some tales recount the man in a "phantom rider" or "vanishing hitch-hiker" fashion: The man is picked up alongside the road, but doesn't speak to the driver at all. Then, after some miles, the strange passenger suddenly attempts to leap from the vehicle. When the driver opens the door to let him out, he has vanished. The perplexed driver then glances up the road to see the man walking along the road - several miles ahead. Another legend recounts how a driver thinks they have just struck the elderly man as he was crossing the road, but when the driver gets out, the struck man is nowhere to be seen.
