OBSERVED: This incident was not my personal experience, but rather my moms, but she is not as good with computers as I am so I'm reporting it for her. She lives with me though, and can be reached at the info i will leave later. The occurance happen several years ago in a rural locaion close to our home. My mom was on her way home from a friends house that lives only a short drive from our home. It was late afternoon and she was coming around a curve in the road, when a tall (6-7) ft tall hairy biped slowly crossed the road in front of her car, almost causing her to wreck. She said it looked like a bear on two legs walking, with the face of a gorilla. The animal walked directly in front of the car without seeming to get in any hurry, even though she had to slam on the breaks to keep from hitting it. She said it only looked back at her once and never stoped walking.It then disappeared into the woods by a lake.
ALSO NOTICED: no, after she arrived home and told me i went directly there, but i could not see any tracks and the ground was very hard.it was getting dark by this time so i did not try and go further into the woods to investigate.

ENVIRONMENT: there are pines on the side with the pond, where it was headed, the ground was dry and hills are common.it is also close to an old train track that no longer is there, just the trail.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Mary Ross:
The witness does not recall the exact time and date that the sighting occurred, but there was still plenty of daylight, and headlights were not needed.
The witness stated that the creature stepped out from the tree line to her right on to the road approximately 5' from her vehicle. The witness had to break hard and swerve to the right to avoid colliding with the creature, bringing her vehicle to a stop. The creature proceeded across the road to the left, almost parallel to the vehicle. The witness noted that the creature's hair was dark brown (almost black) in color, about 7 1/2' tall, and approximately 400 + lbs. It did not hesitate or look towards the vehicle until it was almost in the other tree line, and at that time the witness got a very good look at the creature's features and build. The sighting lasted a total of approximately 30 seconds.
The witness is a retired medical professional.
