Outstanding. These kind are so compelling, including elements of paranormal (the person you thought was a 'real' person 'evaporated' before your
eyes). Plus an element of corroboration, (the other car).
Heres my 'other car' road sighting.
At night driving along a two lane city street with boulevard divider. I'm in the right lane, a pickup truck is just ahead of me in the left lane when
a figure from the far left side of the street comes into view, running across the opposite lanes towards the pick up, carrying two suitcases...
its dark and the figure is lit up from the trucks headlights. As he runs into the path of the pick up the pickup responds by putting on its brakes and
slowing to a stop in the middle of the road. I can no longer see the figure he has disappeared in front of the truck. I am stopped by now too, because
I expect him to come running out into my lane... but he doesn't.
Me and the truck are both stopped in the road for a bit when the truck lets off the brakes and begins rolling slowly, I let them get far enough ahead
before I realize the figure has vanished... he didn't get onto the truck, I would have seen it from my vantage point thru the back window of the cab
of the pickup truck. Besides he would have gone around and gotten in the passenger side anyway. The figure just vanished.
I sort of started rolling again, the truck and I both rolling much slower than the speed limit, sort of dumbfounded I guess after that. They turned
off and I resisted an overpowering urge to follow them to ask WTF, continuing on my way.
There was no reason for them to stop in the road like that unless they feared they were about to run over a stupid pedestrian, I stopped for the same
reason, so they must have seen what I was seeing.
The figure that I can't really describe except a male, carrying two suitcases, was also lit 'weirdly' in the headlights of the truck.
Turning the encounter over in my head I can only assume its a replay of someones moment of death right there trying to cross and getting run down some
time in the past. How that stuff works is beyond me. Its often reported as a replay event, an endless loop of some event involving people. The other
truck provided the corroboration I rely on to make it 'real' in my head rather than a mistaken hallucination, play of light or shadow.
People don't just vanish do they, witnessing these things with others it gets even weirder. You want to discount it somehow, but are left with the
other witnesses actions that keep it from being dismissed as 'flights of fancy.
Thanks for letting me share a similar memory...
