Anaheim psychic Rachel Williams told police she had a premonition that something bad was going to happen on the morning of Friday, February 12. William’s mobile home, which also serves as her walk-in psychic office, was nearly destroyed when a truck plowed into it after the driver lost control as he was heading down Beach Boulevard. According to Sgt. Daron Wyatt of the Anaheim Police Department, the driver of a Chevrolet Silverado accidentally rear-ended a Camry sedan, which caused the truck to lose control and slam into Williams’ shop.

The accident left two people injured, including the driver of the Silverado, and 67-year-old Williams, who was struck by debris while standing in front of her mobile home. Both parties were transported to local hospitals where they were treated for minor injuries.

The crash was reported at around 4:30 p.m. last Friday, which closed Beach Boulevard from Cerritos Avenue and Ball Road.

Considering her location at the time of the truck accident, Williams was fortunate to escape serious injury, and told authorities her mobile home office had been hit by cars at least three other times in the past. While her attached business was wiped out by the truck, the mobile home was not horribly damaged in the collision.

The 67-year-old Orange County woman said the sound of the crash was akin to a bomb going off. “I was screaming ’cause my son was in the room operating the computer. That’s what I was really scared … that he killed my son,” she told NBC Los Angeles.

The psychic told local police she had a “spiritual feeling” the accident would happen, though she could not pinpoint the exact time. She also told authorities she believed or had a feeling that the truck driver may have been drunk.

Further details of the accident are still being investigated by the Anaheim Police Department, who say they have yet to determine whether alcohol or drug impairment was involved.

Legal recourse for car accident victims in LA

In California, motorists who fail to obey the rules of the road and cause accident or injury may be held accountable for ensuing property damage, medical bills, lost wages and more. A civil claim may be merited in circumstances where a driver was found to be intoxicated, negligent, or distracted by a cell phone or other hand-held device.
