Chased by Strangers - A True Story

Introduction

This is a short true story about what was supposed to be a fun outing with our young daughter at the water park. Little did we know that the day would turn out to be one of the most horrifying days we would ever have as we would be chased by strangers.

Saturday Morning

It was a beautiful summer day in 1994. This day started out as a simple Saturday outing with our 6 year old daughter, Jenna. She loved going to water parks and it was going to be a hot summer day. My husband, Johnny and I decided we would drive to Oklahoma City, which is about an hour away, and take her to a large water park for the day. We started our drive in my “old faithful” mini van, which we had for several years. We bought it when I was pregnant and could no longer get in and out of our Chevrolet Camero. The camero was so low to the ground, I had to practically fall into it and roll out of it! The mini van had always been a dependable vehicle…until this day.

The Car Breaks Down

We had been driving for about 30 minutes when the mini van decided it was time to “retire”, and retire it did! It began smoking, spitting and sputtering like it was choking to death. Luckily we knew the man that owned a gas station/mechanic shop just down the road a short ways. We pulled in and he and Johnny decided the van would make it back home with a few minor repairs. So we turned around and made a 30-minute trip back to the house where we quickly changed vehicles from the van to Johnny’s truck. Now I have to tell you here, that Johnny drag races and everything he drives, goes fast. From the truck to the lawn mower and even the golf cart, everything has been given a little “tweaking” to make it go faster. This may have saved our lives later. We quickly transferred out things from the mini van to the truck and we on our way once more.

Water Park and Pizza

We arrived at the water park and spent several hours there, cooling off on the water slides and relaxing in the “lazy river”. This is where you float along a small man made river on a tube. It is very relaxing! We spent several hours at the water park and left soggy, hungry and a little sunburned. We stopped at Chucky Cheese and ate pizza and let Jenna play some of the games. It had been a great day but now it is getting to be about dusk and we have to start back home. We stopped at a “Loves” gas-station/convenience store to fill up with gas. Here is where our nightmare begins.

The White Panel Van

Just as we are pulling into the gas station, Johnny spots a man pumping gas into a white panel van, but he is pumping gas with one hand and “relieving himself” with the other! Right there at the gas pump! I immediately put my hand over Jenna’s eyes as we drive past him and go onto a pump further down. Johnny and I assume that the guy is probably really drunk and not aware of what he is doing. Johnny puts gas in the truck and goes in to pay for it. Jenna and I are so busy talking about how much fun we had at the water park, I actually forgot about the incident.

Did They Rob the Store?

As Johnny gets back into the truck, I do notice the white panel van pass by in front of us, but I pay it little attention and Johnny starts the truck. As we are backing out, there is the panel van again, it is now pulled up horizontally in front of the store and just behind us. As we are carefully backing up, a man runs out of the store towards the van. The sliding door of the van opens and he jumps in yelling go, go, go! We quickly wonder if he has just robbed the store! At this time we notice a faded sign on the door of the van that says “Dept. of Corrections”. Are these inmates that have escaped from prison somewhere?

Get Out of Their Way

Unfortunately as we backed up we placed ourselves in front of the van and were impeding their escape. There is no place for us to go but forward, so Johnny hits the gas trying to get out of the parking lot and out of their way. We quickly leave the parking lot and get on to the on ramp of the inter-state to head for home. The van is still behind us, right on our tail. Johnny moves over into another lane to just get out of their way and let them pass. As Johnny changes lanes, the van changes lanes right behind us. What the hell are they doing? They are right on our bumper! Now I am starting to get a little scared.

Why Are They Chasing Us?

We change lanes again and they stay right behind us, so close, I can see that there are several men in the panel van. What do they want? Johnny said that he did not witness anything while he was in the store, but perhaps they think he can identify one of them, if they did rob the store. The traffic is heavy now as it is a Saturday evening and Johnny is having a hard time zigzagging in the traffic trying to stay away from them. They continue to follow us, getting so close, like they are going to ram us. Johnny decides to take an exit and hopefully they will continue on their way on the inter-state. We change lanes and take an exit, cutting right in front of a semi-truck thinking that they will not be able to take the same exit that quickly. We were wrong, they cut in front of the semi truck so closely that the truck had to slam on their brakes, but they made it! Now it is serious, they just took a huge risk cutting in front of the truck themselves, to stay with us. Now I am definitely scared!

Murder, Kidnapping, Rape?

I ask Johnny if he thinks maybe they are just drunk and think it is funny that they are scaring us. Johnny said they would not have just risked their own lives if they were just “playing” with us. But what do they want with us? Then he mumbled three little words I will never forget. Murder, kidnapping and rape. Now my mind is spinning! What will they do if they catch us? Will they kill Johnny because they think he can identify them? What will they do with me and Jenna? Oh my God, what will happen to Jenna? I have never been so scared in my life!

Did They Just Shoot at Us?

We have now left the inter-state and are on the outskirts of town. These men have tried running us off the road twice. Johnny is a very good driver, thank God, and we have managed to stay on the road. We have run numerous stop signs, 1 traffic light and have passed in a no passing zone on a overpass trying to shake them off. We don’t see them now, so Johnny pulls into a parking lot at a fast food restaurant to get his bearings. All of a sudden there they are, they are pulling up beside us! As I look toward the van, which is on my side of the truck, I see the driver’s hand coming up with something in it. All I can think of is gun! Jenna has been sitting between Johnny and I and I grab her head and pull her down. As I duck, I hear a loud bang. Oh my God! Did they just shoot at us? As I look up at Johnny, he is ok and is cursing at them. They threw a beer bottle at the truck, trying to break the windshield. I was just relieved it was not a gun shot!

Would I Shoot Back?

Now, I will tell you the truth here…Johnny always keeps a pistol in his truck and we do have a license for it. However, when we were leaving this morning, we were in my mini van, so he put his pistol under the seat of the van. When we went home to change vehicles, we were in such a hurry, he forgot to get his gun. I have always wondered if I could really shoot someone if I needed to. I can, without a doubt, tell you YES! If things had happened differently, I would have shot the driver of that panel van that day. All I could think about is what would they to my little girl if they caught us! When your children are in danger, you will do anything you have to, to protect them. Luckily, now we realize they probably do not have a gun or they would have used it just then. I did feel a little better. However, we know there are at least 3 maybe 4 men in this van, and they may be escaped prisoners, the odds are still not in our favor.

One Headlight

Johnny punched the gas and we were off again. They were right behind us once more. Luckily, we were closer to the edge of town and the traffic was thinning. We were going so fast, I swear at one time we turned a corner on two wheels. I was screaming be careful, Jenna was crying and Johnny was yelling back telling me to be quiet and let him get us out of here! We got back on the inter-state and were no longer in heavy traffic and Johnny was able to stay ahead of them. It was dark now, I couldn’t tell you how long this chase went on. It seemed like hours but was probably about 30 minutes. I could see their head lights in my side mirror. I know it was them I was seeing as I had noticed earlier that the panel van only had one head-light. I could see that they were still behind us, but we were getting farther and farther ahead of them. As I watched their headlight I wondered, where were the cops when you really needed them! We had broken every traffic rule in the book, but at least we were leaving them behind. Cell phones had just come out and we had not purchased one yet. (We remedied that within a few days.) I began to calm down as I could no longer see their head-light in my mirror. After a little while, we slowed our speed and continued on toward home. I still kept an eye on my mirror for their one head-light.

We Are Not Stopping!

After about 20 minutes, we were approaching the next town, Johnny asked me if I wanted to stop at the gas station coming up and call the police. The gas station was another Love’s station! Oh, hell no. I told him we were not stopping anywhere until we got home! I don’t know why we didn’t report this to the police when we did get home. I guess I was just so relieved that we were home and safe, I just wanted it to be over. We never found out if these men had robbed the Love’s station, if they were escaped convicts, or why they were after us. I was just glad it was finally over, although I did watch for that van everywhere I went for a long time.

Things Do Happen For a Reason

I believe things happen for a reason. There is a God that makes decisions for us, whether we know it at the time or not. I believe that our mini van breaking down when it did, happened for a reason. As I mentioned before, Johnny’s truck has been tweaked and it runs very fast. If we had still been in the mini van, we would never have had a chance. Was it just coincidence that we had forgotten Johnny’s gun? I can honestly tell you right now, I would have used that gun if I would have had it. I would have shot someone that day. I am thankful that we made is safely home without it. I am sure I would have never forgotten how horrible it would have been to actually have to shoot someone. Things do happen for a reason!

Hi Kathryn! Yes, when I look back, I should have called the state police and reported the incident. I think I was just so scared, that I wanted it all to be over with. I shudder to think what could have happened if Johnny had not been such a good driver. Yes, I think cell phones are a must for protection these days! Thank you for stopping in and commenting, it is always appreciated! Have a Happy Valentine's Day! :)

Wow, that was an intense story! I'm so glad you're in the fast truck, and that your husband is a fast driver. A lot of people would not be able to handle a situation like that.

You definitely should have called the police and reported it, because who knows what those guys did after the chase! But I'm sure when you're in that situation, it is much different than when you're someone like me,, who is sitting in the comfort of home. Some things are easier said than done.

Wow, it was when cellphones were just out. I'm glad that they are common now, it is a good thing to have for safety's sake.

Hello Shyron! I think "God" is the only reason we made it through that ordeal! It sounds to be like He was looking after your family in Del Rio too! It's such a shame that there are such evil people in this world.

What a coincidence, my hubby drives a race car, we also had the mini van and a blue Z28 Camero was the car we had just before the mini van. I love the Camero, but I was pregnant and couldn't get in and out of it! LOL

Thank you for stopping in and leaving your interesting comment. I'm glad you and your family were kept safe! :)

Oh my, I am totally amazed by this, thank God your family was unharmed, other than the scare.

The reason I so amazed by this is so many similarities. Mom, Dad, me and my brothers were chased in Del Rio, Texas. We heard later that some people were murdered on the stretch of road we were on.

My first husband drove race cars. My second husband and I had an Aerostar mini van, a Z28 Camero and a pickup truck.

Hi barbergirl! It really was scary! Right after that, we got our first cell phone! Thank God that Jenna doesn't remember much about it. I have had a lot of weird thinks happen to me, but that was the scariest! Road rage is rampant now! We have had 3 road rage incidents since then. I won't be without my cell phone! Thank you for stopping in and commenting! Have a safe and wonderful day! :)

OMG - this was so scary. I can't imagine ever being in this situation, but someone out there was definitely leading you on the right path. The irony of the van breaking down. You guys were lucky. The only thing I could think of was one time when my husband and I were on our way to Universal studies and a guy in a big Silverado tried running us off the road. He had major road rage. Luckily, we had cell phones at the time. I didn't hesitate to call 911. I don't know if they ever caught him. They turned onto a different ramp and we saw lots of patroling. Freaked me out.

Hi Brenda! Yes there are some scary, crazy people in this world. I guess we were at the wrong place at the wrong time. It did all happen so fast, but it seemed like hours to us. To this day, I still wish I had reported it to the police, but I believe we would have had to go back to Oklahoma City to do it. I didn't want to go back, I just wanted it over! Jenna was really scared. I was trying so hard not to scare her more, but I was so scared myself. Thank you for stopping in and commenting! Have a wonderful day! :)

There are some scary people out in this world. This is the stuff movies are made about. Amazing that it all happened so fast. It is odd that you all didn't report it to the police but I have had things happen and not report them. Later I wonder why. It is the shock I suppose. Wow, your little girl must have been terrified.

I find myself skip reading a lot of things, but i hung on every word to this. I have personally been followed before in the car, but not that bad. I have been followed once before when i was walking home by myself at night. He followed me slowly then asked me if i wanted a lift. I said no thanks and kept walking but picking up my pace. He went up to the next round about, turned back around and then continued to drive beside me. I was freaking out! Luckily i was on a footpath that went away from the road and it was dark, he had to go up to the next roundabout to turn around to come back to me. By this point i was full pelt running, and didn't stop until i got home to my partner. Have never been so scared!

I do know how frightening it is to be chased by someone. I accidentally cut someone off crossing an intersection when there had been a semi-truck obstructing my view and it angered the other driver to the point that they tried to run me off the road for many miles. I had my car going faster than I have ever driven in my life trying to escape that angry driver, who didn't turn around until I had nearly made it all the way (about 20 miles) to the police station.

Hello Nellieanna. Thank you so much for your kind comment. It was very scary, I thank God nothing really bad happened. I do believe that things happen for a reason. For instance, if my van had not broken down, we would have been in it and I'm sure we could not have out run them. It sickens me to think what might have happened. But, we all came out ok. Thank you for your kind comment, it is very much appreciated! Have a wonderful day! :)

Amazing story, sgbrown! You had me on the edge of my seat! So scary- but how significant that it had a good ending, including MANY things that did not happen. Whew. I do think that things happen for a reason and within a meaningful time-table, perhaps when we are most ready to receive their lessons.

Very well presented!

What a scary experience! It sounds like you were very lucky that day!

At a stop sign one day in Houston, the hair on the back of my neck raised up and when I looked out the passenger window this creepy looking guy was staring at me. The light changed and suddenly he started following me. I changed lanes and he did also. At an opportune time and with little notice I made a left turn into a busy parking lot and he couldn't make the same turn but had to go on. My heart was racing! Had he returned I would have gone into a grocery store and summoned help. That was also before we had cell phones. I was driving to a widowed friend's house that night and my husband was at a business dinner. I made SURE that he was gone before I proceded to drive any further.

I certainly would not have led him to my friend's house nor to our house that night!

One must be careful in this day and age.

This WAS scary! I don't know what I would have done either. They say to drive to a police station when you're being followed, but if you're in an unfamiliar place you would have NO idea where one was unless you have a GPS. And besides that, you're so scared it's hard to even think straight! I'm so GLAD it turned out OK for you and for your family! :)
