"She was close to the road. I just told my daughter she was a lost soul wanting to leave.

"At the time we thought nothing of it until today. Two years later. Wow."

Odi Riedel posted: "I guess ghosts are everywhere. It all depends whether you (are) conscious of them or not. Try the local hospital, they have plenty of them."

Aaron W from Kin Kin said: "I had to laugh when half way through reading this story I arrived at the poll questioning if I believed in ghosts.

"This is the first time I've read the article and it claimed I had already voted!

"Well, I believe at the very least there's a ghost in my computer! Spooky..."

Kate Barnard said: "So many roadside fatalities on the highways in Gladstone. Depends if you are a believer."
