Woman blames vampire for car crash six years ago, that was before the pot was legal

A Colorado woman made headlines six years ago, blaming vampires for her car crash in Colorado’s Grand Valley. Theodore “Fodor” Glava is believed to be a vampire buried in Lafayette, Color. but little else on the vampire radar screen. ABC had some fun, posting this photo gallery of “vampires among us” – check it out by clicking here.

The woman claims she spotted a vampire in the middle of a dirt road near Fruita, Colo., as detailed by the KDVR report. She told Colorado State Troopers she was startled by the undead being, threw her SUV into reverse, and crashed into a canal. She was not injured.

In fact, the video coverage picked up by CNN quotes the woman as saying the “vampire was chasing” her. The full video is still on YouTube.

State Troopers say the woman’s husband arrived at the scene and took her home.

The vampire, not seen by anyone else, apparently let her get away.

Troopers do not suspect drugs or alcohol to be factors in the crash.

Glava’s grave is legend among some locals, who are dubious about the origins of Mr. Glava, stating that the fact that he hailed from Transylvania was the likely genesis of the rumors surrounding his grave.

One reader commented on this post: “I was born in Lafayette in 1965, and my mother attended the Church of the Nazarene, which used to be on Roosevelt Street I believe. I grew up in that church, and that cemetery was where all the church members were buried when they died. I spent a lot of time as a child in Lafayette, and I can assure you — that grave was always there. We kids used to scare each other over it, constantly….And my grandmother is buried opposite that grave.”

Back in 2012, a grave in Bulgaria alleged to have vampire skeletons inside: “…corpses were pinned down through their chests with iron rods, a trend in Medieval Europe tied to ‘vampire hunting’ and that corpses were regularly treated this way in some parts of the country until the beginning of the 20th century.” Check out this story HERE.
