This incident happened a while ago in Dublin and even though it sounds like
an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's true.
John Bradford, a Dublin University student, was on the side of the road
hitchhiking on a very dark night and in the midst of a storm.
The night was rolling on and no cars went by. The storm was so strong he
could hardly see a few feet ahead of him. Suddenly, he saw a car that slowly
come towards him and stopped. John, desperate for shelter and without
thinking about it, got into the car and closed the door...only to realize
there was nobody behind the wheel and the engine wasn't on!
The car started moving slowly. John looked at the road ahead and saw a curve
approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life.
Then, just before the car hit the curve, a hand appeared through the window
and turned the wheel. John, paralyzed with terror, watched as the hand
repeatedly came through the window but never touched or harmed him.
Shortly thereafter John saw the lights of a pub appear down the road so,
gathering his courage, he jumped out of the car and ran to it.
Wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and started telling everybody about
the horrible experience he had just had. A silence enveloped the pub when
everybody realized he was crying *and* he wasn't drunk.
Suddenly the door opened and two other people walked in from the stormy
night. They, like John, were also soaked and out of breath.
Looking around, and seeing John Bradford sobbing at the bar, one said to the
other, "Look Paddy, there's that frigging idiot that got in the car while we
were pushing it!"
