That’s true me and my mom were driving over that bridge and we heard a baby crying so we stoped and looked around and couldn’t find anything, and right before we got back in the car it stoped. Then my mom called the cops and they said that, that the bridge was haunted and they have many calls about the same thing.

There is a cry baby bridge where I live. It is said that if you park your car on the bridge, shut it off, get out, put the keys on the hood, and scream i killed your baby, your doors will lock, and you shall hear a baby crying. It is said that if you try to get in your car you can`t cause your doors are locked. It is also said that your car will not start eaither. If you look around it is said that you can see baby footprints and handprints on your car, and you shall see the mother reapeating the murder of her child. I believe this is true because my friends and I have tried it severl times and it worked. BUT if you MISS ONE step it shall fall.

You guys are all goofy. There is a crybaby bridge in every county in Ohio, and I am quite sure none of them are real. How sick to seek out the ghost of a deceased baby anyway.

The legend in Oklahoma is that a mother and her baby were going to work on a rainy day and the bridge collapsed. The mom was dead and they found the baby’s carseat and traces of blood but never found the baby. Another is that a mother threw her baby off the side of the bridge then killed herself and you can go out there on certain nights and throw a rock off the side of the bridge and it will be thrown back at you and at the mother will appear and ask you where her baby is.

I believe that their are ghosts,I have seen them and I don’t judge other people’s experiences with them… I don’t think it’s right for anyone to call them or myself liars…So if you all that question us do not have any thing nice to say don’t speak about us or to us at all ok

Hey Amber, I have lived in Dayton for over 20 years and have never heard this story. Since there are a ton of bridges in and around Dayton – just which bridge is it? I’ve driven over so many of the bridges and never once had my car stop.

I’m 26 years old and have lived in the dayton area my whole life. There
has always been a “crybaby bridge” on Fudge rd. in Preble county. I’ve heard lots of different stories, But all I know is what i’ve encountered.
One day my mother, my little sister and my moms late best friend were out for a country drive , while the whole time telling my sister the stories about it freaking her out. well when we finally reached the bridge we got out to read the sign on the bridge, before we could finish a large truck rolled up on us and a mean scary lady with a gun and told us to get out of there now. Well come to find out this lady owned every house on the street (a very long street) was known to be crazy.Live in several houses and spy on anyone renting her others. She is said to be the long lost relative waiting for the babys father to come back to claim his illigitimate ******* childs spirit. The mother of the baby supposedly killed herself and the baby because she was the poor trash of the town , a prestigious townsmen had an affair with her ,bore her a child and the town cast her out she and the baby wandered the outskirts of town on that road waiting for help or rescue but no one came . One night out of starvation and not being able bear the childs suffering she threw the baby over the bridge in the winter and it froze to death or drowned. The mother then jumped. Legend has it you can hear the baby cry on that very night it happened.
