Sumter County, South Carolina
This happened while the informant was driving on Highway 378, between the towns of Sumter & Turbeville. “I saw a large, erect walking creature exit from wooded area to the south of the road and cross the road with a casual unusual gait and enter a wooded area to the north of the road.
The event occurred approximately seven miles east of Sumter, four miles west of the intersection of Highway 527 and Highway 378 and two miles south of Scape Ore Swamp. The creature was dark in color, possibly black or dark brown. The creature was stooped at the shoulders, arms down at its sides swinging back and forth; it took a casual stride, yet still covered the road quickly, in 2-3 steps.
The road shoulders at this site were angled away from the road into the woods, about three foot from road surface to flat area on the ground. Judging by the height difference of the road and the wooded area, I'd say the creature was well over six feet tall. It was raining lightly at the time of the sighting.
