Experience Description

I was on the EC Row Highway outside of Windsor, Ontario, and it was raining and I was coming home from work at night. I was heading Eastbound and heading to the top of a hill on the highway when a car going westbound entered the highway going the wrong way hit me head on at the top of the hill. The cars headlights where in view for only seconds, and hit my car straight on. My car started spinning only for me to hit two more cars behind me. It was witnessed that my head went through the front windshield, and then the side window, on the second hit. From the first hit the car crushed directly into me, crushing me into the steering wheel and the engine to be lodged into me lap. After the third hit, the car was sent down the side of the hill, taking me off the highway on to the side, going down the hill. To land in a ditch full of water, and the car sinking into the water. A witness, crashed the cars back window, crawled into the car and pulled me out of the car, otherwise I would have drowned, and I was not awake, when I was pulled out of the car.

While the accident was happening, I can remember feeling no pain. I was happy and looking forward in dying and going on. There was a light, and I was delighted to head towards the light, and looking forward to the light in getting closer. I remember saying to the light. I really wanted to join it. A man's voice came to me and told me I couldn't go with them. I was really upset, and wanted to know why, because I was so ready to go. The voice told me that I had to go back, that it had special plans for me, that where very important, and that my job wasn't done yet. I remember arguing, and saying again, that I wanted to go with him. But told I had special things to do on earth, and I had to go back. I accepted the answer, and understood that they were telling me that there was a special plan. Then I woke up outside the car on the ground. Only to be completely unharmed, only with a few pieces of glass in my skin..

For years, little pieces of glass would come out of my skin. The driver that hit me I did meet that night. It was a middle aged man, who happened to be the uncle of one of the police men. I spoke to him that evening he asked me if I was OK. He was drunk. The policeman asked him not to speak. The man was never charged. My car did not injure anyone else.
