One of the most haunted roads in the country is in Central Florida

The next time you drive onto the 1-4 in your doom buggy, beware of things that go bump in the road, it might just be a ghost!

A new report from RV Trader has revealed the most haunted roads in America, with the publication collecting accounts from drivers throughout the country.

From spine-tingling tales of the strange and supernatural, to creepy local folktales, and terrifying personal experiences, so where exactly is the most haunted road in Florida?

It's right here in Central Florida, in Sanford, on a section of the I-4 that sits atop the remains of Saint Joseph’s Colony, an early town of Swedish immigrants. A century after the entire community perished of yellow fever, the south end of the I-4 bridge was constructed over their graves. Now, that cursed stretch of road is known as “The Dead Zone,” where electronics malfunction, cell phones lose their service, and mysterious orbs of lights appear.

If you find yourself driving on this section of the I-4, beware!
