Experience Description

Vehicle broke down on the side of the road. I was changing out my fuel pump under the truck. I told my friend to stand behind the trailer with a flash light in case someone came by us on the side of the freeway, so they wouldn't hit us. Then before I knew what happened, I heard a scream; I got knocked out and awoke to staring underneath the trailer at the back of the truck. I was trying to crawl out and my legs wouldn't move and couldn't figure out what had happened. Then someone asked do you need some help. I couldn't answer. I just held my left hand out so I could be pulled out. When he pulled on my arm, seven of my ribs that were broke pierced my lung. I yanked my arm back. Still confused and dazed looking at the concrete. I noticed a big pool of blood dripping from my head. I lost consciousness again. I woke up on the stretcher in the ambulance, and passed out again.

Sometime between unconsciousness and waking up in the hospital I had a weird encounter with the girl who died in the wreck and what I presumed was God and the devil. It was as if a court room made of stone and then in the shadows were black hooded entities. The light of the fire I seen white hooded ones. Between, the podium where the girl and I were standing, was like a pit of fire and on the other side was the white hooded entity. I looked across on the other side at the white hooded entity and things were so bright. I turned to look at the girl I was with and she was begging, crying, and screaming for her life, or so she could get a second chance. I looked back at the light and turned back to look at her and she was gone. Then I woke up in the hospital to police to tell me she was deceased and where to find her next of kin. I think she went to a bad place and I was given a second chance in this wheelchair to what I will make of it now.
