This story was not personally experienced by me but my husband. He used to work until late at night and had to travel for about two hours back home. Normally, he'll arrive by midnight.
One night, when he came home, he told me what happen during his travel. We didn't own a car so he had to use a public transportation (jeepney). When their ride is about 4 kilometers away from destination, the vehicle suddenly stopped on a very dark part of the road which made all the passengers confused. After couple of minutes of no attempts from the driver to go on, one passenger finally asked what's wrong. Here's the conversation that took place:
Driver, "May pumara, sasakay." (Somebody hailed to take a ride.) All those inside the jeepney looked out.
Passenger, "Wala naman eh!" (There is no one out there.)
Driver, (looking at the rear view mirror) "Ayan malapit na 'yun babae may kasamang bata." (There, I'm seeing the woman almost here with a kid.)
Passenger, "Wala nga." (There's no one.)
The driver turned his head to look directly at the jeepney's opening where the would-be-passengers are about to enter. To his surprise he saw no one. He started the vehicle right away and drove as fast as he could without looking back!
As my husband was narrating, he told me that he can still feel chills run down his spine for what he witnessed.
From what I know, the side of that part of the road has no lamp posts and an open area full of grass and trees. People say that it used to be a salvage area during the Martial Law. Either people were killed in that place or dead bodies has been thrown there.
