I'm (Linda Newton-Perry) walking west here. Across this bridge and to the left is the road to Loon Lake. The Umpqua River is to my right. This is the area the crash took place and "hairy man" observed. If indeed, it is true.
A reader of this blog sent a private email which included an article from a local paper. Six people were hurt when they swerved off the road to avoid two cars stopped in the road. What the paper didn't say and the police radio did say was they stopped to avoid hitting a large hairy man that was crossing the road. If you know more about this incident please tell us. Maybe it was the limping bigfoot.

Living in Reedsport we listened about the car wreck on emergency band. It was said that some car stopped because a large animal had forced a car to stop because of it being in the road. It did come over company radios that the first car claimed the animal was some hairy man. I don't think anyone should think it's true. Speed is usually a factor in the crashes in that area.
