In a lonely road in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, a black man driving a car is chased and hit by a truck, falling off-road and dying. His daughter Cassie Robinson calls her former boyfriend Dean and asks him to investigate the mysterious accident. Sam and Dean see that three Afro-Americans and the Caucasian Major of the town were killed in weird accidents on the same road. When the truck threatens Cassie, her Caucasian mother Mrs. Robinson tells a tragic racist murder that happened thirty years ago, and the brothers realize that they have to fight against a hatred spirit in a ghost truck.

The setting of the fire to the church in 1963 that killed the children inside during their choir practice may be an allusion to the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing that occurred in 1963 in Birmingham, Alabama, killing 4 of the 5 children inside during choir practice. See more
In the opening sequence, when the Ford skids to a stop in front of the truck, the camera pans down to a shot looking through the cab from the bed of the truck. In the next shot the truck is racing off after the Ford again, and you can clearly see the camera crew in the left side of the truck bed. See more
Cyrus Dorian died more than forty years ago.
How do you know he died, Mrs. Robinson? The paper said he went missing. How do you know he died?
We were all very young. I dated Cyrus awhile. I, I was also seeing Martin, in secret of course, because, interracial couples didn't go over too well then. When I broke it off with Cyrus, and when he found out about Martin... I don't know, he, he changed. His, his hatred. His hatred was frightening.
The string of murders.
There were rumors. People of color...
