The following experience took place around the fall of 2007. Some of my friends and I had gotten into going to a few known haunted places, one of which was Mary Buth Rd. in Germantown, Wisconsin. There is a haunted house on that road, and the road itself is said to be haunted and dangerous. A book I read about it advised to pretty much stay in the car. We didn't listen.
All of us got out of the car and were standing on the edge of the house's driveway debating whether or not to walk up it. I started seeing this shadow way down the road. No one else was looking at it but me. It kept crossing back and forth across the street. I would have thought it was just a person but it was about 2:30 a.m. in the middle of nowhere.
One of my friends saw the shadow figure also, so we decided to walk down the street to check it out. It took us a while to get down there. Once we did, we all stopped fast. We heard water running. I thought, Wow we're all way to jumpy.
We kept walking were just about there when we heard footsteps running though the woods. We all froze trying to decide if we should run or what. Then we heard the footsteps hit the pavement. All of us at once just took off down the street. I never ran so fast in my life!
We got the the others and I looked back and one of the people that came down the street with me was lying on the pavement not moving. We had to pick her up and carry her. She wouldn't talk; her eyes where rolling in the back of her head and she was sweating like crazy. When she finally calmed down, we asked what happened.
She said that she turned around while we where running and a girl was there. It grabbed her by the wrists and pulled itself through her. She even had bruises on her wrists from it!
After this, she and I went back to my home to read up on this place. I found stories about the girl and the shadow figure. Also, some about a light that would chase you (which I saw a few times as well on different nights).
So, yeah, next time I read the words "stay in the car," I'm probably going to heed them.
