Truckers Horror Stories aren’t uncommon. We browsed around the net and found the best 5 truckers horror stories there are. Take a look:

Suspicious relocation

“My boyfriend is a truck driver who routinely does midnight runs. Oddly enough I asked him this question myself a few days ago. He told me that one night he getting ready to park in a lot next to a truck stop. And he said it looked like there was no lights, no cars, no sign of anyone but he said screw it — he was tired.

He woke up the next morning parked on the side of the road with 3 highway patrol vehicles behind him. It was about 15 miles away from the truck stop he parked at. Thing is? He was sleeping in his camper the whole night. He has no idea how he got on the side of the road and logic says someone tried stealing the truck and succeeded. And the police convinced him of this happening as they saw ‘a man in a black jumpsuit’ running away from his truck into a nearby field. Even then, he still feels uneasy about the whole situation. Apparently the doors were still locked from the inside and there was no real sign of anyone trying to break in.” — Straightretaliation

The invisible man

“My brother was a truck driver in the 90s/early 2000s. This happened few months ago. He was driving through Pennsylvania on way back to NJ.

He pulled over the side of the road behind 2 other trailers. In the early morning, he heard someone bang on his right door, he quickly jumps from the sleeping compartment and grabs his bat. As he looks out the window, there’s no one there but now there’s a bang on the left side. Freaked out he looks out that window and there’s nothing but silence now. He’s trying to figure out what is going on, seconds later banging on both doors simultaneously. He said the banging was so loud and heavy the truck was shaking. Both curtains open, he can see there’s no one out there. He quickly jumps in the driver’s seat and starts the truck, he sees the other 2 trucks ahead of him do the same. He said he felt as if they all had the same experience.” — Mpoboy

A strange woman

“This didn’t happen to me. One of my good friends from middle school had a step-father who was a truck driver for a good amount of time. He was a tough guy for example I never saw him not look like he could kill someone. Except one time, when he told us why he stopped driving trucks. He was on a long trip from somewhere down in Texas to Boise Idaho. By the time he hit the free way close to Boise he had already been up for 24 hours, either way I don’t believe he could have seen this coming.

He was driving outside of Boise , late at night at the fastest legal speed when out of no where he sees someone sit straight up in the middle of the road. He didn’t have enough time to even hit the brakes, not that it would have helped. Decapitated on the spot and after that he found out she was tweaked out. In conclusion from what the police could gather, she walked out there, sat down and eventually fell asleep in the road. No one knows who she was, or how she got that far out.” — ThatGrillGuy

The ghost

“Nothing huge but I once a train stopped me in Calumet city, Il., probably 2 or 3am and it’s a kind of the ghetto area, so I was a little uneasy being there at that time. The company I was delivering to was at a dead end just after the tracks.

Of course there wasn’t anyone around, just me. I sat parked for like 5 minutes waiting on the train and all of a sudden I heard loud knocking on my door, like rapidly to get my attention. I have a Day cab so I looked all around the truck through the windows and mirrors, nobody. The road was wide enough that I would have totally seen someone run away after doing it in other words I’m sure it was something not on this plane and I accept that. I’m sure people had been killed in that area, at some point in the past.” — lamborghinime 

Mysterious Stranger

“My dad was a trucker for many years. One time he told me he’d stopped at a mandatory weigh station somewhere at night that was refurbished from an old train station. My dad parked the truck and got out, noticing that someone was walking along the train tracks with a light.

It was really late, so my dad called out and asked if he was okay. The man kept walking. My dad said he had a lantern in his hand. My dad called out again and the man never turned around. He went into the office and told them that some drunk asshole is walking the train tracks and the guy behind the desk nonchalantly says, “Yeah was it this guy?” and points to an old ass picture on the wall. It was a picture of all the rail yard guys from like, over 70 years before. Sure enough, my dad had seen one of the guys in the photo. Apparently a lot of people have seen whatever that was and come in asking questions.” — ilestledisko
