COUNTY: Volusia County
LOCATION DETAILS: Oak Hill, Florida in Volusia County
NEAREST TOWN: Oak Hill
NEAREST ROAD: Maytown Rd.
OBSERVED: A large, hairy, ape-like humanoid standing in the middle of a dirt road at approximately 3:30am.
A creature was sighted in the headlights of the witness' pickup truck. As the witnesses stopped their truck the creature began to approach them. The middle part of the creature was closely observed in the headlights and confirmed not to be a bear or any other known animal. Both witnesses reported a sickening odor that smelled like cabbage. The smell was so overwelming that one of the witnesses began to gag. This report was never reported to the authorities or the media. This information was first made available to the researcher in 1995 by witness, P.S.
OTHER WITNESSES: Two observers (P.S. and anonymous) in the process of delivering early morning newspapers.
OTHER STORIES: On State Road 520 there have been several reports through radio talk shows of a big foot-like creature running at cars from the side of the road. These reports were in 1993 and 1994.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Clear with early morning haze
ENVIRONMENT: A flat rural dirt road through forested area which connects with the St. John's River Wildlife Management Area separated by US 1 from the Merrit Island Wildlife Refuge (a part of the Kennedy Space Center).
