Late one night, four St. Charles students drive to the railroad tracks over Munger Road in Bartlett. They stop on the tracks. The guys want to test the local urban legend that the ghosts of children supposedly killed in a terrible bus/train accident will push their car to safety.
One strange thing leads to another. Their car won't start. Their cellphones don't work. A ghostly handprint appears on the window.
And the students don't know that a convicted St. Charles serial killer has escaped from a prison bus and is apparently headed home.
