FAIRFIELD TWP. -A 17-year-old Columbiana teen claimed he saw Bigfoot while driving on Bunker Hill Road last week.
According to the highway patrol report, Robert James Mehlen Sevenich of Metz Road was southbound on Bunker Hill Road at 2:55 a.m. Jan. 28 when he went off the south side of the road and into a rock.
The report stated that Sevenich told a trooper he went off the road to avoid a "creature" he described as at least seven feet tall with green glowing eyes, hairy and very well-built.
When asked by the trooper if what he saw was human, Sevenich replied, "No" and said he believed it to be Bigfoot.
Sevenich was cited for failure to control and the trooper searched the area for any evidence of what Sevenich described, but none was found, including any footprints of that nature.
Sevenich did not appear to be under the influence of any illicit drugs, the report said. - SalemNews
NOTE: I'm actually surprised that there aren't more traffic mishaps as a result of Bigfoot road crossings. Here's a recent submission that details Bigfoot encroachment on a major highway at night:
Hello Mr. Strickler,
Thank you for reading this email. Please leave my name and email address out if you decide to use the information.
I have been closely following the possible Bigfoot shooting story in Somerset County, PA since Weds. I know that Bigfoot exist and that they inhabit Somerset County, PA. In late November of 1994, my wife and I were traveling from New Jersey west on the PA. Turnpike. We were on our way to Steubenville, OH to stay with my wife's brother and his wife for Thanksgiving.
At around 9:30 PM we were near the town of Somerset, PA, so I decided pull off the highway to stop and get gas. The station was near the exit so I quickly filled the tank and headed back towards the turnpike. I was merging back onto the highway when my wife gasped - I saw it as well. My headlights had caught a glimpse of a huge hairy creature walking onto the highway on my front right (north side of westbound lane). I swerved to the left in order to avoid hitting it. There was another similar creature as well, just a few feet behind it. As I passed the creature it must have reached out and slammed it's hand on the trunk - we heard a loud thud. I looked back in the rear view mirror and noticed brake lights coming from the eastbound lane. I assume it was crossing the highway to the south side. I knew that it was definitely a Bigfoot - I had no doubt what it was.
I continued to drive without stopping. Then I thought that I had better stop and make sure the tail light was not damaged. I didn't want a trooper stopping me with a broken tail light and then try to tell him a Bigfoot did it. But then again, if it was broke what was I going to do that late at night? Anyway - I pulled onto the shoulder, grabbed my flashlight and got out of the car. I walked back to the trunk and looked around. I then noticed a slight indentation on the rear passenger side quarter panel. I looked closer and noticed that there were scratch marks on the surface. I wondered if the Bigfoot had been holding something or that its fingernails had caused the scratches. I got back in the car and resumed driving.
The Bigfoot was dark brown and had very long rough hair. I didn't get a good look at the face since the hair almost seemed to cover most of it. My wife and I both estimated that this creature was at least 8 foot tall and had massive long arms and legs. We barely caught a glimpse at the other Bigfoot, but it seemed to be much smaller in height.
I grew up on a farm near Monticello, NY. My brother and I had heard the stories about a man-beast that lived in the vicinity of a nearby lake. We never believed these tales - until my brother had an encounter with a large hairy man while camping with is friends in the Catskills. He never talked about the incident in detail, only that he was shocked by it. It's a shame because he never went into the woods again. I really didn't want to believe him but I knew deep down that something significant had happened to him.
So when I told him about our encounter he just smiled and said 'I told you so.' - MC
