COUNTY: Cass County
LOCATION DETAILS: Its in the story below
NEAREST TOWN: Avinger Tx
NEAREST ROAD: 155
OBSERVED: I drive the same route every evening to work a night shift at a hospital in Atlanta Tx. I drive from near Avinger Tx to Atlanta down Hwy 155. I was running late and got behind a guy towing a boat and he was going well below the speed limit so I took the first opportunity to pass him. He sped up causing me to have to speed up to pass and as soon as I got around him a state trooper came over the hill and I was flying, about 85 mph. I knew I was in the wrong but the hwy takes a right turn and there is a county road to the left (cr 1579). I turned there really quickly before the trooper was able to see me and he flew past the turn off and missed me.
I did not really know where I was after I turned right on CR 1580 and it dead ends at Black Cypress Creek. I turned around and started back the way I had come and glanced in the rearview mirror and that is when I saw it cross the road about 75 yards behind me. I have a dash camera on the front but not on the back. I tried to swing it around to get it on film but the footage was terrible.
I know what I saw. It was at least 7 ft tall and black as a hog but had to weigh over 400 lbs. It was a freak encounter but I know what I saw. I never believed any of this but there is no doubt at all. It was looking at my jeep as it crossed behind me and then it was just gone. I have not been back there and I am not sure if I will go back.
ALSO NOTICED: I had never been down that road before, have not been back.
OTHER WITNESSES: I was alone, driving to work.
OTHER STORIES: No
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 5:45 pm ish. Overcast but good visibility.
ENVIRONMENT: Swamp to pine forrest.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Michael Brumfield :
I spoke with the witness ,still seems a little freaked out over the incident. He recounted the sighting as described above.
It was also added that it was black-toned and didn't seem threatened by the witness. It moved slow across the road moving slow until the vehicle turned around.
