A listener writes “The reason I am emailing you is because a few months ago here in Arkansas I was driving down a two-lane highway just after dark when something that I could have swore was a orangutan with reddish hair came hauling ass up onto the highway from out of the woods and it had a raccoon hanging out of his mouth.
A large mouth that had the raccoon by the backbone, anyway, it came hauling ass up onto the highway out of nowhere on all fours and I smacked it dead center of my hood. I remember it turning and looking at me right as the impact happened.
Here’s the thing, right at the exact second of impact I saw a flash, I’m not going to get into detail right now, but it was not like a camera flash or any other type of light strobe, it was just a flash man, and then boom. I hit it and the impact was so hard it felt like a brick wall was in the middle of the highway I came to a quick stop I got out with a flashlight expecting my car to be totaled. No damage to my car whatsoever. Nothing man. My airbags did not deploy, I was traveling at around 65 miles an hour, I backtracked to see where the impact took place to see if I can find whatever it was a hit.
No blood at all whatsoever on the highway, but, blood all down the side of my car on the passenger side, blood all over my right rear tire, but nothing in the road.
No Trace that I had hit anything except for the blood on my car and wheels and there was absolutely no damage like I had impacted anything. It’s kind of a long story and I’m sorry I took up this much just trying to give you a brief description. If you want to get back with me that would be great.”
