The Evidence for Phantom Hitch-Hikers [PDF]

All over the world motorists report giving lifts to hitch-hikers who then vanish, ghostlike, en route. Phantom Hitch-Hikers, as these insubstantial passengers are called, have become classified as an urban legend and related to historical tales of supernatural traveling companions. But is there more to such stories than picturesque folklore? Are there genuine paranormal experiences behind the reports?Goss explores the meaning and causes of this phenomenon. In terms of purpose and behavior, the Phantom Hitch-Hiker of urban folklore is a thoroughly conventional ghost: one who matches popular expectations of what a ghost is, what it does, and why. He or she is the spirit of a deceased person, the victim of a tragic accident, which resulted in the premature termination of earthly existence. It would appear that these "ghosts" are motivated by, especially on the anniversaries their unfortunate accidents, a desire to complete their unfinished homeward journey. It would also appear that they do not know that they are dead.

Oringinally published in 1984, this was among the first books to address itself seriously to such questions and to examine the available evidence for these encounters critically and objectively.
