One night traveling from South Texas it was almost midnight and I was tired and wanting to get home from a late night at work. I was traveling North on Hwy 281, almost to the immigration check point i could see the lights up ahead, other travelers were also in a hurry and one car traveling behind me was coming up pretty fast. The highway i was on was a double oneway with a shoulder. I decided to quickly turn into the shoulder to let this vehicle pass me. On my left was a vehicle already so I turnned onto the shoulder at that point a large white wing swooped down on the riht of my car windshield seeing this wing I swereved back onto the highway, but not before I saw in the front headlights of my car a man that I would have killed. He would never have known at that instant the intentions of a driver at that exact moment to go off on the shoulder. But by the Grace of God and His Angel or Mine he was saved and I was saved that the vehicle that i was allowing to pass slowed and no accident or collision happened. I thanked God. The wing was white and it ranged about have the span of the windshield.
