Location: West Newton, Pennsylvania, Westmoreland County
Recently I learned of another Bigfoot encounter when I was giving a presentation on UFOs and Cryptid reports. A woman and her daughter approached me and told me about an experience that the mother had on April 17, 2016. The witness, who was quite upset after the incident, called her daughter soon after it occurred. She gave her daughter a lot of details on the phone and her daughter proceeded to write them down.
Her daughter had brought along her note pad and shared that information with me. I had the chance to talk with the witness in detail and later that day, I went with the witness and another relative to the sighting location just a short distance outside of West Newton. I searched the immediate area, but nothing unusual was observed.
The incident occurred during the evening on a rural road just a short distance from West Newton. The woman was driving about 35 miles per hour and traveling towards West Newton. As she drove along the stretch, on the passenger side of the road to her right, she saw a tall dark figure come out of a clearing and walk up on the road just as she was about to pass that area. She slowed down to look and saw the creature was at the passenger side of the car. What she saw stood approximately 7 feet tall. It was covered with long brownish-red hair. The arms were long and skinny.
What frightened her the most were its large shiny red eyes that seemed to be luminous. The creature was looking into the passenger side window at her. The woman told me she was very frightened and hit the gas and sped down the road to get away from the creature. The witness mentioned that she doesn’t like scary things and had no interest in Bigfoot or watching such TV programs about the creature. She also stated, “I never thought it would happen to me.”
The West Newton area and other nearby Westmoreland County communities have had a long history of Bigfoot encounters. In the late 1960s, local residents reported encountering the “Lowber Monster.” A white hair covered creature was reported by locals and strange footprints were found. There have been many other reports since that time including this encounter from 2014. http://www.stangordon.info/wp/2014/06/06/bigfoot-sighting-reported-near-west-newton-pa-may-17-2014/
This is the second report in recent months where a Bigfoot came very close to a vehicle here in Pennsylvania. http://www.stangordon.info/wp/2016/05/12/bigfoot-touches-witness-vehicle-in-fayette-county-pa-a-report-from-researcher-jim-brown/
