This happened about a month ago just outside a little town in the low
country of West Virginia, and while it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock
tale, it's real. A guy was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a
dark night >>in the middle of a thunder storm.
Time passed slowly and no cars went by. It was raining so hard he could
hardly see his hand in front of his face. Suddenly he saw a car moving
slowly, approaching and appearing ghostlike in the rain. It slowly crept
toward him and stopped.
Wanting a ride really bad, the guy jumped in the car and closed the
only then did he realize that there was nobody behind the wheel. The car
slowly started moving and the guy was terrified, too scared to think of
jumping out and running.
The guy saw that the car was slowly approaching a sharp curve, still too
scared to jump out, he started to pray and begging for his life; he was
sure the ghost car would go off the road and into the marsh and he would
surely drown, when just before the curve, a hand appeared through the
driver's window and turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely
around the bend.
Paralyzed with fear, the guy watched the hand reappear every time they
reached a curve. Finally the guy, scared to near death, had all he could
take and jumped out of the car and ran to town.
Wet and in shock, he went into a bar and voice quavering, ordered two
of whiskey, then told everybody about his supernatural experience.
A silence enveloped and everybody got goose bumps when they realized the
guy was telling the truth and was not just some drunk.
About half an hour later two guys walked into the bar and one says to
other: "Look Bubba, there's that idiot who rode in our car when we were
pushing it in the rain."
