The Bride Ghost of Bayview Bridge in Mulga Alabama

The Bride of Bayview Bridge

A lady in Bayview left the wedding altar and while crossing the Bayview Bridge in Jefferson County Alabama, her car crashed through the guard rail. Legend says her ghost walks the bridge in search of the groom. Other versions:

One of the most popular versions of the story revolves around a young woman who had hired a dressmaker for her wedding during the 1940s. The girl walked to the dressmaker for her final fitting, but on her way home she was attacked by a pack of wild dogs, killing her and leaving her spirit to roam the bridge for eternity. Another claims she was driving after the wedding with her husband when she crashed into a guard rail, killing them both and prompting her ghost to endlessly search for the groom.
