Carriage overturn tales attached to Cry Baby Bridges (or bridges that go by other names) are somewhat common actually, perhaps because these things really did happen. For example, in Everett Historic District in Ohio at the haunted Everett Covered Bridge, a husband and wife slid into the river as they were riding home in a sleigh. The husband died and the woman survived this accident, but the bridge has been haunted ever since. Pageland, South Carolina Cry Baby Creek Bridge is another location with a similar story, but without the solid historical evidence to back it up.
