Renegar says her real name was Annie Lydia Jackson and she was a 35-year-old woman who lived in Greensboro.

“It was a Sunday night,” explains Renegar. “It had been raining, it was foggy. He lost control of the car. It overturned just short of the underpass. The driver's name was James Clyde Hutchison. There were two other people in the car who were also injured. He took off running, which is another thing that fits the ghost story."

Through Guilford County Records, Renegar and Greer were able to find Annie’s death certificate and her grave site.
