An Incident on Route 12 by James H. Schmitz

An acronym I haven’t heard for years is BEM for bug eyed monster. In this story an escaping bank robber who may have murdered a guard and a bank customer has car trouble while still 110 miles from his destination. He is desperate and willing to kill to get another car. That’s what he does but what he kills is not a man but a thing wearing the body of a man. This story anticipates “Men In Black” by many decades.
