The Jazz Man of Second Creek Bridge
In Elgin, Alabama, where U.S. 72 crosses Second Creek, urban legend tells of a man who was hit by a car and killed while walking across this bridge. His spirit has been seen wearing a white zoot suit, and he may try to catch a ride with you to Florence. If you agree to give him a ride, witnesses say he mumbles something about his trumpet and then disappears.
Elgin, also known as Elgin Crossroads, Ingram’s Crossroads, or Marmion, is an unincorporated community in Lauderdale County.
