Highway 401

While driving eastbound on the 401 out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada through Scarborough back in summer of 1992 during a warm sunny afternoon, a very powerful phenomena suddenly manifested itself... What sounded like a loud sonic boom shook my car so violently that I immediately looked to my left rear to see if the older brown station wagon I had spotted in the fast lane had rammed into my car. He hadn't, and was then casually overtaking me on the left lane, windows open, his long hair flowing in the wind, not a care in the world. The incredibly deafening hits continued in 5 consecutive impacts, about 1 second apart, and followed by one final double punch. It sounded like a very loud and sharp "POK!" sound.

"POK!... POK!... POK!... POK!... POK!... POPOK!"

Every hit was felt sharply throughout the car as the steering column shook violently. It was as though a 100 foot giant was wacking the top of the car with a 40 foot beam... I immediately pulled over to check the car. Amazingly, the roof was not caved in and everything looked fine, as all traffic kept driving by as though nothing had happened. I then started driving again, but with my ears hurting and buzzing from the booms. It took over an hour before my hearing started recovering, and to start calming down and finally be brave enough to go over 100 km/hr (62 mph) again.

Can anyone explain what the hell happened?

Welcome to UM invader :st

I'm going to guess whatever it was, it wasn't loud enough for the driver of the other car to have heard it with the windows down on his car. Maybe you ran over something, or something went wrong with the car. I'm going to hazard a guess it never happened before or since then?

That's what's strange about it. Nobody else around including the guy in station wagon right beside me were aware of the violent forces directed at my car... The road was perfectly smooth and there never was anything wrong with the car. They were extremely powerful explosive shocks that rattled the entire car violently. It was loud enough to hurt and ring my ears for over an hour. The 6 impacts were very sharp and perfectly sequenced at about 1 second apart, all of equal force and sound, including the last double hit. It was definitely of supernatural nature.

Wheel bearing, U-Joint, Ball joint...Did you ever take that car to a shop to have it checked? How long did you keep the car after? Did you have any suspension, front end, drive train, etc, later in the time you had the car?

I was already a mechanic in 1992. The car had no related mechanical or driveline problems whatsoever before, during, and long after the incident until it was sold 2 years later... These sudden and incredibly powerful and loud explosive impact forces felt like they came from above, overhead, and shocking the entire car. It felt just like a very angry 100 foot tall giant was wacking the roof of the car with a 40 foot long beam.

I have no idea what you heard, but as a retired mechanic myself i want to welcome you to the board and welcome more posts.

The 401 can be a scary highway to drive, supernatural or not. Was there a particular reason you mentioned the 401? Couldn't it have happened anywhere? I take the 401 also and it can be stressful with all the congestion.

I mentioned the 401 because that's where it happened, only there and nowhere else... It was also in broad daylight on a fairly busy section of the freeway close to a major city.

There was also one other scary poltergeist type experience I had late at night about a year earlier while driving in the same area on the 401, also eastbound... The antenna on front right fender started swaying sideways. I first noticed this happening although there was no wind outside or anything to cause it. Chills ran up my spine as the antenna's side to side swinging intensified without any logical reason. I noticed an older white Ford Escort a couple lanes to my right. His antenna had a perfectly normal slight rear sway. I was hoping to catch his attention as I could see the driver. Now the antenna was nearly hitting my hood at every swing to the left! :blink: It was crazy scary! It finally subsided and quickly reverted to a normal slight rear sway at it should. This lasted about 5 minutes.

I saw on a UFO programme that someone in the USA had a similar experience on a highway too and when they looked at their car, there were physical dents in it and it had the appearance of being melted. I have no idea if you believe in alien life, wormholes etc but I do and maybe it was an invisible object that came very close to your car and that came through a wormhole? It would be interesting to see if you can find out if there are any ley lines in the area or any other high concentrations of crystal or other mineral or anything out of the ordinary that causes this area in particular to have strange phenomena?

Invisible objects? wormhole? A little too far-fetched if you ask me. I am pretty sure there are more logical explanations than the ones you have given.

Almost sounds as if something might have been picked up in a tire, causing the steering to shake as well as the POK noise, and then come back out, without causing a tire leakage.

You can not posibly know if he did not have a care in the world....

you were driving as well as thinking you got hit....

he was overtaking you....

his long hair was flowing around him....

he was in his drivers seat, so some space between you both,  

On a busy section, 

"not a care in the world"  is complete speculation,

 "supernatural nature and poltergeist "  ? Really? Did it occur to you, you may have run over something...or do you think you were the only one targeted on this busy road by a ..... what ever you are speculating  about now?

No I definitely didn't simply run over something on the road or catch some debris in a tire. Yes, in America, "not a care in the world" in an expression meaning the driver in the station wagon on the left lane beside me clearly had a very relaxed demeanor and displayed no concern or any reaction to the most violent impacts and deafening noise I was subjected to... Yes, really. Unlike some pretentious limey, I was actually there, and like it or not, that is exactly how it happened.
