I had a really creepy experience last night on I-99 in Pennsylvania. It was around 11 and I still had 2 hours left for the day. Then while driving I saw a person standing in the middle of the ROAD. I slammed on the brakes and pulled over because once I stopped the person was just gone. I looked around didn't see anyone and I inspected the truck because I actually thought I could have hit someone. Surely enough nothing. The person was gone and I decided to stop for a 30min. Last night I had the worst sleep ever but with coffee I made it to my drop off and picked up my next load.

I was honestly so scared last night and am still in shock. What was your scariest experience? Have you ever experienced seeing a person that wasn't there? And no I am not crazy despite how crazy this sounds.

Believe this or not, but I strongly believe there are apparitions or ghosts out there that could be encountered at some point by some drivers. I'm not the only one with these thoughts and/or encounters, either.

I have had two "sightings" that could not be explained. One was in NC, and the second was in AL.

Ohhhh Boy ! lol Well, I believe in things around us, we cannot explain from another realm. Have had a few real life experiences, myself. Not on the roads, but at home, in a couple different houses we had lived in..... 1, I actually was in rem sleep, when I felt the palm of a hand, on my left shoulder (side sleeper) that pushed me towards the wall ! Scared the bejeebees outta me, I jumped outta bed,turned on the light, and nothing was there (alone,w/ my door closed)

Which later was confirmed by dad's buddy, who had "the gift" once he came and did a walk thru. Supposedly, "she" was there watching over my dad, in a good way.......

wow!!! I was so scared about my experience on the roads I can't even imagine how scary it would be at home.

Several years ago, I was making a delivery to a Sam’s Club DC at night. To get to the location there is a somewhat old and narrow two lane road. Suddenly in my headlights I saw a person on my right walking towards me. I had to swerve to miss the person and as I went by, I could see that this person was huffing spray paint. The paint had made the face look like something out of a horror movie. This was very unsettling and, also the closest I’ve come to hitting someone.

I never had an encounter like that, but I’ve had on multiple occasions felt like someone was in my truck, I remember being in NY a few years ago, driving down the high way around midnight and all of sudden I just felt like someone was in my truck, since I had stopped 10 miles back for fuel, so I pulled over on the side of the road multiple times to check my truck top to bottom, and I just couldn’t shake the feeling, went on for about 30-40 minutes before I finally felt fine again. Couldn’t explain it, but my wife is into all this paranormal stuff, and said something about how a sprite or something could’ve caught a ride with me, not sure. Til this day when I tell this story, makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

The feeling of someone in your truck has to be close to the worst feeling ever!

If you haven't had a cursory look into "odd subjects", check out "Coast To Coast AM" with George Nory after 1:00 am on SiriusXM and on some AM radio stations. Some nights I do listen, then other nights it's way too over the top for my thoughts.
