I figured the Pit would enjoy this story that my grandmother's friend's son told me about his trip back to Michigan. (Fake uncle, in other words and I will call him Ben)

My fake uncle Ben had just bought a boat (nice size one too) down in South Carolina and he had the long, tedious job of hauling it back up the Michigan.

So... a little more than half way through the trip (day 2) as they are on the freeway and there is this motorcycle in the lane next to them. Ben said that the motorcycle stayed beside them for a good 15-30 minutes because his kids were interacting with the motorcyclist (waving, etc.)

All of the sudden, Ben's wife got the strongest urge to get off the freeway. She told him flat out "We need to get off of this freeway, now." No one in the car was hungry, but she almost needed to stop anywhere, just to get off. They ended up eating lunch at a fast food place off the exit.

A few minutes later, leaving the fast food parking lot, they got back on the freeway. As soon as they entered, traffic halted. It was at a stand-still and people began to walk around the free-way.

Ben eventually asked someone what had happened, and the other driver said something along the lines of "A semi had t-boned an out of control semi and caused the back (the cargo) to spill out into the road. The flying debris had hit someone, on a motorcycle."

The guy had died. The very same guy that was following beside them for a good half an hour. If they had not gotten off of the freeway, Ben and his family easily could have been killed.

TL;DR - Fake uncle's wife had instinct to get off freeway, prevented possible death.

The story sent shivers down my spine, and freaked me out.

So, has anyone else had a experience like this, when pure instinct caused you to avoid danger?

Dude, similar story for me too... On the way to up north Michigan, on the freeway, we got some gas, and when we got back on the freeway, there was no traffic, so we drove a while down, and everone was backed up... An SUV had rolled over. We would have been hit or almost hit if we didn't stop and get gas.

My grandma's friend is basically my grandpa. So he would be my uncle if they did get married.

No, he it's his son. This is just getting confusing...

If my grandma married her friend, then her friend's son (Ben) would be my uncle.

Well, this one time I was exploding some fire-work with my friend, and we plan to make it explode at the mcdonalds, but we tryed one before in the parking of a grocery. Someone call the cops for that, but we where already far away. BUT !! we saw some very hot chicks and we stopped to talk with them. After that, the cops caught us, and told us not to do that again. We obey. They wanted to arrest us, but they receive a emercngy call form the mcdonalds, a random guy get shoot by another one. So they let us go with a simple warning.

If it wern't from the hot chicks and our ''we wanna get laid'' instinct, maybe I'd be the one who get shoot.

By he, I meant his son. I guess that is easily mis-understood considering I didnt mention the son within the sentence prior.
