COUNTY: Brevard County
LOCATION DETAILS: Brevard County (Cocoa), Florida. Around 11pm at night on Nova Road which is off of Route 520. Nova Road is 30 miles long and extremely desolate (swamps and cattle farms).
NEAREST TOWN: Cocoa
NEAREST ROAD: Nova Rd.
OBSERVED: Was about 11pm and had stopped in the middle of the road to go to the bathroom. Nova Road is 30 miles long in cattle country. After 20 seconds of being out of my car, my sister said someone was coming. After she said that I heard branches breaking to the side of the road where the woods are. I glanced to where the sound was coming from and saw a tall dark animal running toward my car. The animal had to be 7-8 feet tall. After I saw the thing running from the woods on the side of the road, I ran back into my car. I was scared. When I first saw it, the thing was running from the woods towards me and my car. I'm like, we're outta here. It ran like a man, upright, It was 11pm, so naturally the color was dark in appearance. But from my taillights, I'd still say it was dark in color. And it moved fairly quickly. Which is why I jumped back into my car so quick. As I sped away, I tapped my brake lights and saw the thing standing in the road looking at us as we drove away from it. It was a really creepy feeling!. I still remember it clearly to this day. It was so errie.
ALSO NOTICED: : I didn't notice any sound. Just when I heard the first branch break, then the footsteps increased a lot. After I heard this, then I turned around and looked towards the side of the road. It could of made a noise, but I went from 0 to 60 mph in 2 seconds, so I didn't notice any other sounds. My sister actually heard the noise of the thing first. She said something is coming. I'm like "yeah right", then I heard it, then we saw it! She was so afraid she couldn't stop laughing (I know strange), but she was actually laughing because I jumped so quickly back into the car. She was still in the car. She said she didn't know what it was, and neither did I at the time.
OTHER WITNESSES: 2, my sister and I. We were driving to Kissimmee, from Cocoa, Florida.
ENVIRONMENT: : Nova Road is extremely desolate. Road goes through cattle farm country and swamplands. The exact location was near a 2000' TV antenna located just east of Nova Road. The landscape is flat, and other then the TV antenna, no homes or for that matter humans for 30 or so miles
