The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents to be vigilant after reports of a vehicle flashing its headlights behind drivers.

Sheriff Steve Cox said the warning is for drivers to stay safe.

“If this happens to you, do not stop for these people, call 911 and report your location and information. We do not know if this is some kids playing a joke or some creeper with bad intentions,” Cox said.

The office said it has received information of two recent incidents at night on Route Z south of Chillicothe.

“People were driving on highway Z after dark and both experienced a car, possibly Ford Taurus, pull up behind them and begin flashing their headlights as if trying to stop the citizen,” Cox said. “One motorist reported the car behind them even had their headlights off and on repeatedly.”

Cox said information suggests both drivers were alone when this happened and one of the drivers thought there may have been 3 occupants in the car behind them.

One incident reportedly happened on June 24th and the other was June 28th.
