Covette Tunnel

3899 Piney Fork Rd, South Park Township, PA 15129, United States

Website

Piney Fork Tunnel on Piney Fork Road is also known as “Corvette Tunnel”. The tunnel is very narrow and lies adjacent to a sharp turn in the Road. Legend has it that 2 corvettes were drag racing, and only one could fit into the tunnel. The other met a horrific end, leading to the death of a young girl. Some have said you can still hear the screeching of tires and the screams of the young girl if you visit at night. Also, if you dare to flash your headlights 3 times into the tunnel, the ghostly headlights of a corvette will appear, heading right at you! It should be noted that this tunnel is often confused with Green Man’s Tunnel, which lies in the same vicinity, but is apparently off of the roadway. This is a good example of how legends and folklore mix and grow over time and become attached to such haunted places.

13 Bends

Tourman St, Coulter, PA 15028, United States

One of the most popular but confusing “haunted place” urban legends is the story of “13 Bends”. The main story involves Coulterville Cemetery near Elizabeth, McKeesport and Boston. An old orphanage from the 1800s that stood on this site burned down years ago, and you can still supposedly hear footsteps and children, and perhaps see some apparitions in the rear view mirror of your car! Some encounter a great sense of sadness as they drive by. Childlike handprints can then be seen all over the vehicle.Read more…
