I had this really vivid dream last night that I just can’t stop thinking about. I’ve googled to try to find information about what it’s meaning might be (some believe that kind of stuff, some don’t), but I can’t really find anything that matches.
First, it was in color. It was in perfect order and very detailed. The part that bothered me the most was the very end so I’ll just skip to it. It was raining and I was a passenger in a car driving down the expressway, he was driving me home. The driver wasn’t someone I know in real life. In my dream he was a guy I was tutoring that offered to drive me home after our meeting (I tutor at an urban center for adults trying to get back on their feet and earn their GED). While he was driving, he missed the exit we were supposed to get off of. When I told him it was the exit, he swerved really fast to try to make it anyway, I got scared and I told him he didn’t have enough time and to just take the next exit. I look up and all of a sudden he’s going straight into a tree -like a redwood tree- it was at least 5×5′. We were traveling head on into the center of the tree and he can’t get over because all the lanes are full of cars so he just keeps going straight. I curl up in a ball, put my hands in front of my face, and wait for the car to smash into the tree, and, as the car hits, I wake up. It felt so real and when I woke up I was shaking.
I’ve read about interpreting dreams where you die, but I don’t know if this is necessarily a dying dream. It just scared the heck out of me because it was so real and so vivid, and I had such a response when I woke up. I’ve been in car accidents before and know the feeling you get right before you are about to hit something, and I even felt that right before I woke up.

@ananeele: Sorry, I can’t interpret- just wanted to also relate, that I was in a dream car accident last night also- except I was being chased around a parking lot by a vehicle where the driver was screaming, “let’s see how long it takes to kill her”… yay for real life! 😀

I think trying to interperate dreams can be fun and interesting but i don’t know if you should look at it literally. My husband has a history of night terrors and had dying dreams all the time – try not to harp on it 🙂
but for fun:
tree– Life. A tall, healthy tree is often a symbol of a flourishing, vibrant life.
accident– Being in an accident (car, airplane, train, etc.) can mean:
- You’re afraid of something catastrophic happening that’s out of your control
- You’re feeling things are out of control somehow in your life right now
- You feel or fear bad luck or things not going your wa
unknown person – A person you don’t know can represent many things, such as:
- A real person you actually know, or a particular person’s role in your life
- A characteristic or general type of person
- A type of person you’d like (or wouldn’t like) to know
- A general threat or fear (not a person)
- A problem, challenge, issue, to-do list item, etc.
- A religious figure or helper
For clues about what the person represents, consider their characteristics, what they’re doing and how, what stands out about them, and your emotional reaction to their presence.
- A gift or assistance from God
- Nourishment and replenishing (as rain nourished plants)
- Spiritual presence
- Cleansing, washing away the old, and starting new

There’s a website called: dreammoods.com that gives answers to what you see/experience in dreams. For me, it’s been about 90% spot on. Other times, it’s just random. I’ve also heard that whatever object is in your dream represents some part of you … but, I’ve never quite grasped that concept.

It definitely has to do with feeling that a particular situation is out of your control. It’s very common.
