Default Christine Skubish (ghost mom who saved son)

This is the descrption as given from Unsolved Mysteries:

"HIGHWAY VISION 7:13 On Highway 50 on 6/9/94 Christine Skubish fell asleep at the wheel and drove off the road. She died instantly, but her son Nick miraculously survived the crash. However, the car and boy were only found because two other travelers had a vision of a woman resembling the mother, which caused them to call the police."

Do people remember (or own) this one? I vaguely recall seeing it. On another MB (strange phenomena related)I frequent someone posted asking for details about the segment. A search on the 'net of either 'Christine Skubish' or 'Nick Skubish' doesn't turn up anything except UM links. Does anyone know the even location where it was supposed to have happened or any links to the original story UM based their account on?

Thanks!

SURVIVOR OF CALIFORNIA DRAMA HAS FAMILY HERE
Post-Tribune (IN) - June 16, 1994

Lawrence Skubish knew his 25-year-old daughter Christine was missing for days in California.

A national newscast showing the mangled wreckage of her car told Skubish she was dead.

"The report said they had found her car all mangled up and it said she didn't live," Skubish said from his Portage Township home. "It was like a nightmare just unfolded all of a sudden."

Christine Skubish 's death made national news this week because her 3-year- old son, Nick , Lawrence Skubish 's grandson, survived the drive off a 40- foot cliff and lived for five days before being rescued.

"Thank God little Nicky is alive," Skubish said. "I put trust in the good Lord and we will do what we must to go on."

Christine Skubish attended Portage High School from January 1986 to December 1987. She also attended Ivy Tech in Gary and Valparaiso, Skubish said. Christine was a partner in a Merrillville business called Nails on Broadway for about a year before moving to California, he said.

"She was such a good girl," Skubish recalled. "She wanted to go to law school."

Christine and Nick were last seen June 6 in Placerville, Calif., El Dorado County Sheriff Lt. Howard Wilson said.

On June 9, a motorist traveling the winding and mountainous U.S. 50 through the El Dorado National Forest claims to have seen the figure of a pale white, naked woman laying curled on the road, Wilson said. Police searched the area and found nothing, Wilson said.

The next morning, Deputy Richard Strasser, who pieced together the last hours of Christine 's life, drove to the area where the motorist reported the naked figure and saw a baby's shoe nearby.

"There was nothing else there to indicate an accident, no skid marks or anything," Wilson said.

At the bottom of the cliff were the motionless bodies of Christine and Nick Skubish . The 3-year-old was alive, but scratched, dehydrated and malnourished, Wilson said. He has since has been released from the hospital, Wilson said.

Police say it appears Christine fell asleep at the wheel and drove off the road.

A memorial service for Christine and trust fund for Nick are being arranged.

This story has similarities to a longstanding urban legend. I sent snopes.com information on this case, but they don't seem to have added it to the page: http://www.snopes.com/horrors/ghosts/rescue.asp

Default Highway 50 Ghost

This wasn't an urban legend; I was in Sacramento when it happened. The interesting thing was that the news reported the police report of a naked woman seen on Highway 50 a day or so before they ever found the car. Then the newscasters had to figure out how to report that the naked woman was a ghost. It was pretty funny to listen to them just say..."we just report it; we don't explain it."

Nick Skubish is on Facebook. I'm almost sure it's him. A newspaper article mentions his grandfather hailing from Portage which is the highschool the Nick Skubish on Facebook went to.
