  • I saw a video similar to this when I was a kid, it was in another language (there were subtitles) and it was a group of friends who picked up a lady in white, and after awhile, when she points out of the window, to a spot/tree (it was wooded, or rural), she says something to the effect of 'there, that's where I died'. The friends start to freak out, the camera pans toward her and her face and dress turned into a gory mess, subsequently they crash, in damn near the same spot she did. I can't remember if they all died or if someone survived, or if authorities just ended up finding the footage. It was on a weird website full of caught on camera ghost videos, maybe the dark web, not sure, an older family friend was showed me and my brother while we were visiting and the url looked different and complicated to type out.

  • You know what, this story, makes me scared, of taxi drivers. Not the "lady". This is very sad. Please, call for help if you feel horrible, you are not, you should never think you deserve to disappear of a cliff and you should always ask for help and ...People care more about you than you think. PLEASE TAKE CARE.

  • I doubt this is true because a human being WOULD CALL THE POLICE and I doubt taxi drivers are evil monsters. They would panick, call the police. This seems like a sort of sleepy cab driver, not really awake, tired, changing the story in their mind. Because you call someone. I call this-very fake or very terrible.

  • i had thought they would use other stories for the lady in white. By the way, my sis once took cab besides the road at night. After she had gotten on, the cab driver asked her "why didnt your friend waiting beside you got into the car?" "Theres no one besides me, I'm alone." I assume they rode in silence the whole way back.

  • Beyond the fact that "hitchhiker in white who eventually disappears" is one of the most common ghost stories worldwide, there's several things that make me think this is fake, but the biggest one is "yeah, this cliff in the middle of nowhere has an address."

  • Did anyone think that this cabbie just witnessed a suicide and didn’t report it??!! Like how are you suppose to see a dead body down a cliff in the night with pouring rain?? Yes she was burned, she was maybe in pain and that explains the growl?? Like report it to the police or something so the can be recovered!!

  • Omg this hits a little too close to home for me. A year ago I was in Indonesia in a taxi on my way to the airport. I was really tired and hadn't slept well the night before. So I was dozing off a little bit in the back of the car. Apart from the driver, I was the only person in it. After some time, I woke up again and on my left I see a honest to god woman in white. With long black hair and a long white gown. Looking exactly like the image at 4:36.... And she's looking at me...... I was frozen, like wtf was that? I had no idea what was happening, I really didn't believe in ghosts and spirits and all that shit but then that happened?? I still try to rationalise it, like maybe it was just the fatigue? But a few months ago I bring it up to an Indonesian friend, who says it's a common phenomenon in Indonesia: the kuntilanak (the Indonesian woman in white who haunts the roads). I swear I had never even heard about that before. I still get anxious thinking about it. I probably shouldn't be watching this.

  • I’m betting the story is true but not supernatural. I would guess this was a meth addict who had been burned from making meth and was at the end of her rope and committed suicide by jumping off that cliff. I’ve seen and worked with addicts who do not look like they are alive. So I believe this is could be a true story, just missing some context.

  • Imagine it's true and the cabbie just overreacted to a disfigured woman, and the woman killed herself... Now there's a family wondering "Where is ole burnt faced Sally?", because he kept her suicide a secret instead of reporting it like a normal person would... That's a bad cabbie haha!

    Michelle ThomasMichelle Thomas10 days ago
  • Honestly, the sheer amount of detail in the telling of the story made me highly suspect it was fictional. I'm still leaning that way, though if the narrator wrote it based on someone else's story rather than his own experience, I guess how he told it seems a little less suspicious because he heard a spooky story and retold it, thinking about how to flesh it out absolutely as much as possible as he went along to make it sound like it happened to him even though he heard it from someone else ("he's trying too hard to make us believe this" was a recurring thought I had throughout the story). It just comes across VERY much as something someone put a lot of thought into creating and embellishing, rather than someone telling a story of something that happened which genuinely scared them and of which they might not remember 100% of the details because they were tired, human memories aren't perfect, and THEY WERE SCARED.

  • honestly at the cliff scene, there were two thoughts in my mind if I was the cabbie. one, gear in reverse and accelerated backwards out of there in full speed, or two, I floor it and drive the bitch off the cliff down with me if she tried something. if I'm going down, so is her pale ash ass going down with me.

  • (I'm guessing whether it's real or not at the point where he is talking about the sounds) It's fake because he's entered the address in the GPS on his phone, makes note that you can here the "telltale clicking" of the indicator, but not the shrill voice of Siri telling you where to go?

  • Just call the cops... It could be suicide for all I know I mean looking down a cliff in the dark at night with your phone's flashlight might not be the most reliable to see if there is a body or not 🙄 also let's assume for a second that this was really a plain old ghost. What if she pushed him off the cliff when he was looking down? Man... It's not a good call. Stay in your car, lock the doors, start driving away and call the police... Also maybe don't call people with scars "it" just because... you know they're people 🙄 and that piece of paper is evidence. Maybe they'd find a fingerprint on it or sth damn I'd be too curious not to give it to the police... Also i don't think an "alleged" true story is a true story. The guy probably is a good storyteller who likes making up things just for the fun of it probably but heck was it fun to listen to. I'd appreciate it so much if my cabbie would tell me spooky stories while dropping me off somewhere that's the good life

  • Why is it always dark hair and a white nightgown? Like that combination is not nearly as common as spooky stories try to make it out to be I don't know anyone who owns a white nightgown. And also like white was something you didn't usually wear when the ghosts from half of these stories were based from you normally had like a few pieces of clothing and white was super expensive and got dirty really quickly so you usually didn't wear white

  • This jerk sees a woman in a white nightgown in the middle of the night on a quiet road & immediately is like, "instead of asking her if she's okay or checking to see if she looks afraid/hurt/in shock, lemme stay quiet until it's uncomfortable for ME, at which point I'll ask weirdly invasive questions. Then, oh, she's hurt? Won't make a detour for the hospital, oh no, let's speed up to her destination, which God knows what's waiting for her there, while gasping in terror & not asking if she's alright or in danger! Solid plan!"

  • He did it. He finally did it. When he threatened my daughter and I after the divorce, I never thought he'd act on his harsh words. I thought that I could get away, that if I put some legal barriers up he'd just disappear from our lives. I was so wrong. Alice and I were staying with my sister; her house was jus† outside city limits, close enough to the shore to hear the ocean at night. The sound of the waves brought us comfort, even through the custody battles that plagued our waking hours. Convincing the judge of the abuse we had suffered was harder than I thought, but after weeks of pleading we finally won his confidence. I thought we were done with my husband. I got the restraining order and even a police officer stationed outside my sister's house, but a man in a rage isn't deterred by by laws and logic. I was in line to pick up Alice from school when the cloth covered my mouth. I fought back, but the drugs got to me before I could get away. When I came to, my daughter and I were in our old basement. Her father stood over her limp form, sprays of red staining his trousers. My beautiful Alice, a bloody pulp on the floor. The center of my universe had been taken from me while I slept. The haze that came next was as deep as the one brought on by the drugs. I remember the searing pain on the right side of my face, the white hot rage that overtook me as I avenged my daughter. I can't recall anything until I had made my way out of the house. The wind was cold on my bare skin, only a thin nightgown between my legs and the cool night. I searched for a way back to safety, my eyes settling on a lone cab in the darkness. I wrote down my sister's address on a stray scrap of paper and attempted to wake the dozing driver. After a few nervous moments , he plugged the address into his phone and the car took off. "Only 27 minutes until safety," I told myself. If I could only get back to my sister's I could make right all the evils of this night. I held on to the last shreds of my sanity until I heard those words, "So you got someone waiting for you there? Anyone who knows you're out here?" Every inch of me was suddenly on high alert, every memory of my childhood as a woman in America came screaming out to warn me of the intentions behind the question. I didn't dignify it with a response; I was done being the scared one. Instead of a polite non-answer, I gave him a growl in response. That shut him up fast. He drove faster and faster, and I certainly wouldn't tell him to slow down. After a while, he inevitably saw my scarred face in the rearview mirror. Instead of neighborly concern for me, he reacted in shock and disgust. His immediate revulsion at the sight of my face reminded me of the distaste the judge had shown my daughter and I. My mind began to spiral, I thought of every reaction I would garner after my story went public. I couldn't handle the shock and hatred, not alone. The cab stopped, half a block from my sister's address. I wouldn't be subject to the judgement of the masses. I couldn't face the next sunrise without my daughter by my side. I opened the car door and stepped back into the night, all but forgetting the fearful cabbie in my wake. Each step I took felt like another person was the one walking, like I was piloting a character in a video game. I approached the cliff's edge, but no fear came to me; Every atom of my being urged me over the edge. My thoughts turned to Alice; my baby girl waiting for me on the other side. I wouldn't leave her motherless. My baby, my darling, my little girl. I'll see you soon my love. The ground disappeared beneath my feet; I barely noticed as I began falling. No more pain, I promised myself. No more darkness.

  • Iirc in Japan after the massive tsunami a few years ago, cab drivers would pick up people, and they would be given an address to one of the places that had been devastated, and when they were en route their fare would just disappear? But most of them would continue the journey to the destination anyways out of respect for deceased.
