There was this guy caught in an intensive rainstorm while driving through bayou country in Louisiana, an Ohio businessman who abandoned his disabled automobile on the side of the road and attempted to hitchhike.
The night was pitch black in the middle of the thunderstorm and the rain was relentless. Time passed slowly and it was raining so hard he could barely see his hand in front of his face.
Suddenly through the sheets of rain he saw a car coming slowly toward him almost ghostlike in the heavy rain. It silently crept toward him and stopped. Desperately needing a ride, the man hopped in the car and closed the door. Only then did he realize that there was no one behind the wheel and no sound of the engine could be heard over the pounding rain.
Again the car crept silently forward and the man was terrified but too scared to think of jumping out and running. He saw that the car was approaching a sharp curve and, still too scared to jump, he started to pray and beg for his life. He was sure that he car would go off the road into the bayou.
But just before the curve, a shadowy hand appeared at the driver's window, reached in and grasped the steering wheel and deftly guided the car around the curve then disappeared as quickly as it appeared.
Paralyzed with fear, the man watched as the hand reappeared and and guided the vehicle expertly every time the car approached a curve.
Finally, scared nearly to death, he jumped out of the car and ran into a nearby town and found a tavern still open in the darkness. He ordered two cups of black coffee and gulped both down as quickly as he could still shaking. He then told everyone there about his supernatural experience.
The room grew silent and everyone got goosebumps when they believed the man was telling the truth and not some drunk who had wandered in.
After about thirty minutes, two Cajuns dripping wet walked in and one said the other, "Look brudder, ders dat idiot what rode in our car when we wuz pushin' it in da rain."
