Truck Drivers Warned to Avoid Road
Category: Conspiracy Theory
Due to encounters with "large wildlife", local truckers were warned not to drive on highway 108/Monoway after midnight between the village of Twain Harte and the unincorporated township of Miwuk, ten miles to the northeast. Local officials took this extraordinary move after documenting 8 encounters in three months with a creature (or creatures) described as a hairy, big man with misshapen features.
It all started in October of 2010, during a spurt of new house construction on Killearn Drive. Due to the presence of constructions workers, a couple of food trucks found it profitable to come around, usually from 11:00-1:00 or so. On Friday, the 15th, one broke down. It was repaired later in the day, after most of the workers had already left the site. The men started the truck and pulled out of the construction site and heard something hit the side of the truck, at least that's what the driver and owner, Mr. Sanders, believed at the time. They stopped to see what had happened, and when the owner and his employee went to investigate, they saw someone had pulled off the rear door of the truck and was still inside, throwing things around.
"That's when Mr. Sanders got his gun," said employee C. Charles, who was working that day. "He kept it in the glove compartment all the time. But I didn't know about it."
