A section of Buell Road outside of Cincinnati is rumored to be haunted by a bike-riding ghost. The phantom bicyclist appears as a little boy and is occasionally witnessed by passing motorists. The same section of highway was also the site of fatal crash that killed two teenage girls.
Buell Road travels south from Crest Road and ends at Pippen Road near Triple Creek Park. A few unfortunate souls have taken their last breath on this small stretch of highway. Two wooden crosses remain as a reminder of how dangerous the street can be. The memorials are for Lauren Dietz and Miranda Phelps. The two teenage girls were killed on May 29, 2007. They were students at the nearby Northwest High School.
Buell Road is said to be haunted by the spirit of a young boy. According to the legend, if a motorist stops their car on the road, flashes the vehicle's headlights three times, the ghost will appear on a bicycle behind them. If the apparition reaches the car before the lights come back on, the traveler will die in seven days.
Buell Road is located between Crest and Pippin Roads, in Colerain Township, Ohio.
