Follow-up investigation report:
I was able to contact the primary witness directly. He gave the following details:
The creature appeared ahead in headlights. When he first saw movement he thought get ready to avoid a deer, then noticed it was upright. There was a road sign behind it and the creature was about even with the sign, about 8ft. It was not shaped like a bear. Very similar to Bigfoot seen on TV (Bigfoot in Patterson film). It was one color, not shaggy, but hair covered. It took less than 4 steps to cross paved road. It had very long arms, but not much neck, and was very muscular looking, probably over 500 pounds. It crossed the road right to left perpendicular to highway then through the ditch to the left then out of the lights. Hands were closer to knees than hips. Upper body leaned slightly forward. Just walking briskly, but not running.
