Don't Take These Otherworldly Truck Driver Stories Lightly - Odd Nugget
Garbage truck drivers are probably the least irritated and frustrated in stop-and-go traffic when in their personal vehicles.
Truck driver tales that take you to places as weird as the ones below do are nigh on impossible not to look at. Go on - you know you want to...
Nobody in the trucking industry would ever admit to the things that they see for the equipment malfunctioning to each other. They are even far less likely to admit this stuff to people that they know, because most the time it could just be brought on from sleep deprived hallucinations. I'm telling you this to the fact that this is an anonymous Forum posting website without being 100 Anonymous but Anonymous enough so that I know my identity will not be exposed.
I see things driving around at night things like shooting stars dropping from the sky at 3 a.m. on the horizon of New Mexico and Arizona though one of these shooting stars did something I've never seen before. I will admit I've not been a truck driver for very long little less than a year and I'm working towards that your goal, my experience would be far less than some of the things that other people have seen however I still have experiences as well. This shooting star is one of those experiences. Shooting stars is either meteor or space junk falling through the atmosphere of the Earth. They would aren't like you would see in the movies and cartoons and animated film they will also just drop down straight depending on where their position is West Horizon is in which direction you are facing.
This one star in particular didn't drop down at first it just look like a normal start hovering in space like any other star that might still exist out there. It stay there and then it shot and disappeared its disappearance was like it was burned in the atmosphere how it did this confuses me. I've never heard of anything like this before, this could easily be a scientific form for how space debris literally burns up as well though that wouldn't account for the fact it was bright enough for it to stay as a star in the sky stationary before shooting up as if it had somewhere to be real quickly. This is only one of many encounters I see nightly as I drive from Midnight to noon due to the traffic being the lightest between these points and parking being the easiest to find when convenience is needed.
If you want to know more about the other encounters I experienced technical equipment that I have trouble with regardless of what is in front of me or not and I need for that matter please let me know and I'd be willing to share more than here with you. This is all experiences that I myself as a truck driver encounter not nightly sometimes weekly but definitely memorably.

My uncles creepy truck driving story
I originally posted this on creepyencounters but I think it was removed because more people thought it would go better here in paranormal. This is my uncles story Im sorry if its poorly written Ive wrote it down while he was telling it to me in real time.
My name is Rick Martinez and I am a retired truck driver. This happened when I was like 30 years old. I am now 62. On the road I seen many strange things. Ive told this story over and over. Allot of people dont believe me. But it starts off in Stockton Ca where I picked up a load of pipe. My destination was Salt Lake City Utah. I was supposed to refuel in Barstow Ca at a truck stop. But low and behold they wer out of fuel. So I told my supervisor Hey I got like half a tank of fuel. He told me to continue and hit the first truck stop I seen.
So 100 miles into Nevada nothing but desert. Seen nothing but a sparsely lit desert with a couple towns. When I noticed my gauge set was reading empty. And Im thinking thats not right. So I took the first exit I saw and pulled over. Told my supervisor who was right behind me an hour away that I was afraid to continue on and run the tanks dry. So he told me to sit still and he would be by in an hour and we could siphon some of the fuel from his tanks into mine.
So I sat there and I notice that it was a small town with sparse lighting. As I sat there I couldnt run the engine so I couldnt listen to the radio so I sat there in silence. I dont do drugs and I didnt make this up so listen carefully. As Im sitting there I notice allot of undone construction a trailer park to my right completely dark and a church off to my left about a block away with its lights on. Its about 2am. And I see this jack rabbit hopping around my truck. It hops around and just stares at me and keeps hopping around. So Im getting hungry and I notice what looks to be a convenience store another block away from the church.
So I get off the truck and decide to walk to the store. While Im walking I keep hearing this dog howling like its in pain. As Im passing the church the two doors are wide open and I hear clapping like theyre having services. As I pass the church I look inside and theres no one Except for this skinny white old man reading from the Bible and talking about Hell. I dont linger too long and pass the church. Then I heard clapping again. About then the dog starts howling again. I notice theres a bunch of empty houses on this street that goes up hill. I still am making my way towards what I think is a little mini mart. All the time the dog keeps howling. All the lights are on. As I go inside this little old lady with glasses is reading a book. Theres hardly anything in this store. Maybe a few cans of food couple bags of chips only water in the refrigerators. The whole time the lady didnt even pick her head up from the book. So I grab a water grab chips Im hungry as hell and theres nothing to eat. So I asked the old lady is this all you have and where is everybody at?? She told me everybody moved out and new construction was supposed to begin like 6 months ago. And she didnt say anything after that so I paid her and walked out and started walking back towards the truck.
The whole time the dog is still howling. So as I got closer towards the church I looked up the street towards where I heard the howling from. I decided to go see for myself why the dog was howling. House on both sides of the street are boarded up and dark. I saw a house with the lights on. With about a 5 foot fence. When I looked over the fence I was in shock. What I saw was a man in his underwear with a chain attached to his neck on all fours. Howling. The hairs on my arms and neck stood up as I saw this other man burst through the back door and kick the man on all fours and was yelling at him to shut up. he ran into a dog house. I was in shock and turned and ran back down the hill to my truck. As I pass the church both doors still wide open but there was no lights on anymore and still I can hear the clapping.
Finally made it to my truck called my supervisor and told him what I saw. Told him hurry and get here so I can leave. My supervisor asked what exit wer you talking about and I told him and he said oh I passed that. He had to turn around and come back to get me. So Im sitting there and the rabbit is still hopping around my truck. It stopped and looked up at me as Im sitting in my truck. Im not saying the rabbit said it but this is what I heard Leave.
I rolled up the window and waited for my supervisor who showed up 5 mins after. I told my supervisor what happened and he just laughed at me and told me Im gonna have to drug test you. I did not sleep on that whole trip to Utah until I got to Salt Lake City .
Believe it or not I swear this is what happened.

Entity in a white dress
Link to several photos at the bottom!
Background info: My husbands dad is the VP of operations for a company that employs truck drivers for delivery. Anytime a driver hits brakes, speeds excessively, swerves, etc a camera automatically records just before to just after the incident. Its always on and running but only records when an unsafe event occurs and that footage is automatically uploaded and my father in law views it. There are two cameras, one records the driver and one faces the rd. He basically determines whether disciplinary action needs to be taken if the driver is driving inappropriately.
My father in law received a video last spring and Im going to describe the events for you. Two truck drivers were driving down a two lane rd late at nightearly morning. Its pitch black outside and they see something ahead in the rd, as they get closer you can see a female in a white dress walking in their lane. The person turns around to look at them as they pass throughby. What the video doesnt show is they stop and jump out because they dont believe there is any way they didnt hit the girl. They dont see anyone in the road, no one in the ditch, no blood or evidence anyone was there. They were still convinced they had hit someone and called the police. The police showed up to write a police report and investigate but found nothing upon searching the surrounding area. Some research was done on the area and turns out that in 2013 a girl was walking in the rd there and was killed when struck by two vehicles.
My father in law is not tech savvy so he logged into his corporate account on my husbands laptop and we helped him download the video. Unfortunately for legal reasons Im not allowed to share the video but I did take screen grabs for you to look at. In the video you can see there are cones that have the shoulder blocked off which didnt allow them to swerve out of the way, you can see them approaching the woman who is walking in their lane, you can see their reactions before and after passing the lady, and the speed they were traveling at. I have screen grabs of internal emails discussing the event and the subject line is the ghost incident but I 100 cant post those..but the entire incident has them in a tizzy!
I thought you all would enjoy [the pics](I went back through emails and found the email correspondence discussing the incident. I had part of it incorrect regarding the girl who was killed. The girl that died on that stretch was struck by two vehicles, the first was a hit and run and the second vehicle was behind that one and stopped. The girl was was hit in 2013. Im editing the original post to reflect this.
Edit2: So..according to mods I cant post the link to the article about the girl that was killed years prior on that stretch of the highway. I can dm it to anyone interested.

My Grandma sensed my uncle's death, and she also knew when it was time for her to go...
This is my first post here, I hope this is the right place for this story.
Background: My dad's mother used to live at mexico city, while I live at Yucatan Peninsula, so I only got to see her during Christmas holidays, when we used to visit her for 2 or 3 weeks. Never got really close to her, as she was already old and kinda grumpy. She had 9 children, and my grandpa died around 19867.
First story (by this time, my grandpa was still alive):
One of my uncles was a truck driver (the kind of driver that transports goods on land), and whenever he returned to mexico city, he would call my grandma to let her know that he might be dropping by for lunch, dinner, or whatever... When he finally got home, he would honk the truck's horn outside the house to let everyone know he had arrived (and grandma kinda disliked this, hehe).
One day, she heard my uncle's horn, which actually puzzled her because he hadn't called letting know that he was dropping by. This didn't actually bother grandma, so she went to the window of her bedroom that overlooked the house's porchmain entrance, only to find that my uncle wasn't there.
Immediately after that, the phone ringed, which my grandpa answered, only to receive the call from the police notifying that my uncle had had an accident on a highway and had died minutes ago. Both my grandma and grandpa were shattered by the news, obviously.
A time after the incident, my grandma told my aunts and uncles what had happened just before she got the call. She was certain that my uncle came one last time to say "hello", before passing away.
Second Story (my grandpa had passed away, this took place during March 1996)
My grandma became sick with a flu-of-sorts, which then derived into a neumonia, which took her to the hospital for tracking and observation, as she was already 80something.
The neumonia didn't get better and my grandma was visibly weaker. All of my aunts and uncles were really concerned and started to prepare themselves for the unavoidable.
People weren't allowed in crowds inside my grandma's rooms, so usually just one or two people would go visit grandma, just to check on how she was doing (as she rested and slept for most of the time), and sometimes would take turns and some waited downstairs with the children whole others visited grandma. I'm guessing that because of her delicate condition maybe there was no need for external contams and stuff from the outside brought into her room, or whatever.
One day, one of my aunts went to visit my grandma by herself at night, hoping to find her asleep, which she didn't. When she arrived to the room, grandma was awake, happy and talkative. My aunt chilled with her for a while, a bit confused, but happy to be able to have a fluidnormal conversation with her sick mother, just as if she were totally healthy and present, and while randomly talking, grandma said: "you can leave whenever you want... Rodolfo (my uncle) and your father (my grandpa) are downstairs waiting for me, sitting by the tree at the entrance." My aunt didn't know how to proceed, or what to say. She felt kinda sadweird, but at the same time happy, knowing inside her that my grandma pretty much just said "you go, it's ok, I'm leaving too...". She said goodbye to grandma as any normal day, and went home.
And yes, needless to say, grandma passed away that night.
Sometimes when family gathers during Xmas nowdays, we remember these stories. I remember the first time I heard it, it gave me the chills (but in a nice way).
Ps: sorry for any grammarsyntax errors, as english is not my native language.

Something compelled me to change my driving habits one night and it saved my life.
About two years ago I was dating a girl who lived thirty minutes west of me. To get to her house and back to mine, I had to travel on a single two-lane country road. Like most country roads, theyre often abandoned past a certain time and the only things you typically see are deers or coyotes running across the road.
I would stay at my girlfriends house until 2am or later and then I would hop on the road and drive home. At this point, I probably drove home from her house over 50-60 times so I got a feel for the road and the accompanied drive. I knew where cops sometimes sat or the typical place deers would across.
This road had no stop signs but had intersecting roads so I got used to dropping my speed dramatically whenever I got close to the roads. The only time I didnt drop my speed was when I approached traffic lights since usually people take these more seriously than stop signs. The forest, cornfields, and the expectation youre alone on the road can easily create a car accident if youre not paying attention which is why I slow down at the other intersections. The only stop light was close to my home and turned the two lane country road into a divided 6 lane road. There were 2 lanes on one side and 4 on the other side for turning left, turning right, and two main lanes.
As I approached this light at around 3am I saw a car probably about a mile ahead sitting at the green light. Im assuming the lights operated on sensors since this light was green all the time.
At half a mile away I started to get an eerie feeling because the car was still sitting there. I rarely ever see any other car on the road especially this late and people who are on the road are hurrying home. I have no idea why but I started to slow down and stay in the lane behind the car. On any other night I definitely wouldve switched to the other lane and just cruise through the light at reduced speeds.
As I pulled behind the car, who had now been sitting at the green light for about a few minutes, something felt very off and almost instinctively I just stopped dead in my tracks right behind the car. From my car all I could see is someone in the driver seat sitting straight up. It felt like I sat there for an eternity but in reality, it was only several seconds.
Almost as soon as my car comes to a complete stop, a 18 wheeler with a trailer barrels through the intersection running the red light. The speed limit on both roads was 60 and the intersection was blocked by brush so in a second the truck appeared and just as fast it disappeared. The light never changed for either sides or indicated that a car was coming. Im assuming the truck driver probably thought the roads were empty at this time of night so he gave no #$@$s.
However, The weirdest part was that as soon as the truck passed through the intersection, the car in front of me immediately switched lanes and took a left turn. In almost a blink, the car went from stopped still to turning away. I was in lucid state of shock and disbelief at what had just occurred and just sat at the green light.
I know if I had driven around that car at the pace I usually go, I wouldve been t-boned without ever seeing it coming. Theres no doubt about it. But something that night compelled me to act abnormal and it saved my life. To this day I still have dreams about this interaction because it is one of a few situations where there is no logical explanations for why I acted the way I did suddenly and it ended up saving me.
