One the way to Foxford there are three cross roads. One night a young boy was coming up one of the roads and he met a car at the cross road and the man that was driving the car was very drunk. The drinken man ran against the boy and knocked him down and in a few hours he died. That very same week two other men were killed in the very same spot. People say that those three men that was killed can be seen every night at about twelve o clock. They are all clothed in white.
