Dan's Experience

Experience description:   

note - this is just one of a number of odd things like this through my life. 

I was driving home from the cemetery, as noted above, I had been visiting my fathers grave on the anniversary of his passing.  I was stopped at lights behind a car that was similar to one that one of my aunt's and uncle's owned a few years earlier (which I thought of at the time).   

at that point I had a mental flash image of a white sedan crashed into a tree which I thought was weird.  that night my mother, sisters and brother attended a memorial mass for our dad.  about an hour after we returned home an uncle called to tell us that our aunt (the one that I mentioned had owned a car like the one in front of me earlier in the day) had passed away in a car accident.  she was driving back to Canberra from the coast and had veered off the road and crashed into a tree.   

two nights later I was watching TV.  a brief news report between shows came on.  one of the bulletins was about my aunt.  they said police had released her details.  they then showed video footage of the accident site.  turns out she and my uncle owned a white sedan.  the image on the TV was the same one that flashed in my mind's eye.
