    ..Saw a dead guy laying face down in the gutter once, early on a real foggy morning while in my way to work.. Was pretty eerie... Since it was so early, the only cars on the street were mine, the one cop-car on the scene, and the dead guys van with the drivers door hanging wide open -parked at an off angle against the curb.............. The other time was a car accident I drove by during my lunch-break.. the driver, still in the drivers street, had already been covered with the yellow tarp, but the wind had blown the tarp up a little, exposing most of the guys mangled head.. I passed by so close I could've thrown my Taco Bell trash through his window... Pretty surreal to see the exact spot where someone took their very last breathe here on Earth..... All their memories...their achievements in life.. Their gradations, marriage, the birth of their children, job promotions... Their entire lifes journey ceased on that very tiny chunk of real estate that day..... very surreal, indeed

    One time in Vermont, I came out of a 7/11 type store, and notice a minivan off the highway across the street.

    When we went to check it out, we noticed that a guy was underneath the minivan. This had just happened, so the driver started to try to back up over the guy again, who was wedged under the minivan.

    We stayed for about 5 minutes, pretty numb to the situation, and realized it best that we just left. Authorities were on the scene by this time.

    We later heard that the guy had died in route to a hospital via medivac. The guy had been walking along the road when the minivan plowed into him from behind. All of this was in pitch black darkness as well.
