A 3 year old girl named Carrie who died in 1887 has been haunting the roads leading east out of Washington, North Carolina for well over a hundred years now. She is always seen in the pale yellow dress she was buried in, and has actually caused tragic car accidents in 1966 and 1989 due to people trying to avoid hitting her apparition. People have often reported her to the local police, only to be told not to worry once her description is noted.
