There have been incredible moments of paranormal events throughout history, and whether you believe it or not, some things just can’t be explained.
But even the most sceptical of people might even believe this strange story.
Do you believe in late relatives coming back to visit you?
This is what one man thinks after a bad car accident left his car totalled and a bizarre photograph exposed a spooky figure lurking in the background.
A Reddit user decided to share his story to the r/Ghosts sub to see that others could make of the picture.
@Own-Medicine-2753 wrote: “So earlier in the year I had a car accident. A 4x4 did an illegal u turn and t b*ned my car.
“I was driving and my partner was in the passenger seat. Once everyone was out and by the side of the road away from the accident I quickly wanted to grab some photos of the accident I took four pictures and I was very shaky when taking the pics and one came out the most clear.”
What was in the picture, I hear you ask?
A creepy figure which almost looks translucent.
The driver explained: “In the pic I have attached nobody was there when I took the photo but standing by the driver side door (where I was) looks to me like a man who actually reminds me of my grandfather who passed away when I was 12 and then people who knew him think it’s him too.”
It’s not unheard of for families to claim that relatives have come back from the grave to check on them, but there’s also a possibility that it could be someone else due to the location of the crash.
The Redditor said: “May I add my accident happened right near a cemetery But yeah lemme know what you guys think.”
Comments suggesting that the figure may indeed be a ghost quickly flooded in, with some begging to see the poster’s grandfather for comparison.
One person speculated whether the person was a ghost who had passed away at the location: “Looks like he's wearing a light blue shirt and the sleeves are rolled to his elbows. Maybe light brown hair.
“An adult, but not old. He may have long sideburns, or beard. I'll bet he isn't the only person to die there.”
Another wondered whether this was the poster’s grandfather coming in to check that he was fine after the accident: “I’ve had deceased loved ones come through to give me comfort and guidance during difficult times.
“I think this may very well be your grandpa coming through to support you during this traumatic experience.”
There were speculations about whether the man had been visited by his very own guardian angel: “It’s your guardian angel. He showed himself to you.”
Someone else however, thought that the ghostly figure could be an old rockstar: “It's definitely the ghost of Sid Vicious playing shirtless at the Pistols last gig at the Winterland in SF, 1978.
“Well, either that or phone cameras suck at night and it's a lens aberration and flare from the oncoming car.”
The poster hasn’t yet replied with a photo of his grandad for reference, so commenters are left to wonder who the ghostly person is and why they turned up at the scene of a crash.
