Casper, a total skeptic of all things paranormal, nonetheless had a head-scratching experience. So was it a Alternate Reality TWIDDER, or a Back to the Past spacetime-slip with multiple cars a part of the episode?
“Seeing is believing and I had never seen anything paranormal before this, and I haven’t seen anything since. But I’m sure of one thing—I have absolutely no explanation for what my boyfriend and me, as well as at least six other people, saw.
“The incident I am writing about took place in Michigan in the spring of 2008, sometime in late March to early April. I was in the car with my boyfriend on I-96 headed west; it was a little after 3 p.m. We were coming up on the exit for Farmington Road when my boyfriend shouts, ‘Holy @$#%! Look at this!’
“I look over to the left and see this girl sliding down the grassy bank on the side of the expressway. She looked about mid to late twenties; she was really pale with shoulder-length brown hair and she was wearing and old-looking cream colored slip like you would wear under a dress, and no shoes.
“She look absolutely filthy, like she’d been in a dungeon for years. I couldn’t believe my eyes as she started running across the expressway. It was mid-afternoon, but the expressway only had a few cars on it at the time. They started slowing down to avoid hitting her, and probably to watch in amazement, like me and my boyfriend—so I know we were not the only ones who saw her.
“She scrambled over the cement wall median and across our side of the expressway. When she got to our side I could see her a little closer and it looked like she was running from someone or something. She looked terrified, as if she was scrambling to get away from something.
“As she started climbing up the other side of the expressway and our car was almost right next to her, she just disappeared into thin air, just like that!
“My boyfriend and I both said at the same time, ‘Did you see that? She disappeared!’ We got off on the Farmington Road exit. The whole time my boyfriend was looking out the back window for her. We even pulled over into the gas station right off the exit and got out and looked around for her, but she was nowhere.
“I don’t know if she was a ghost or from another dimension or what, but I KNOW what I saw was real and so does my boyfriend. I know the people who were in the other cars on the expressway that day saw her too.”
A retired teacher I may be, but collecting the extraordinary accounts of spacetime slips folks have documented keeps me busy. (Almost as busy as racing after 14 grandchildren!)
