When I was 21, I was heading to a club with 2 friends. As I got ready, I started feeeling really odd then it became clear to me that my friend and I were going to get into an accident and I would not walk away from it. This was before cell phones...I had to wait for my friend to tell her I could not go with her since she had already left her house when had this revelation. When I opened my door to tell her I would not be going, I felt a strong hand on each shoulder holding me back (I was alone in the room) - once I told my friend I couldn't go with her (I also told her I had a bad feeling she was going to get into an accident), the hands and the odd feeling went away. On the way home from the club, my friend got into a car accident and totalled the passenger side of the car, where I would have been. She was fine, the passenger side of the car was empty and destroyed.
