I love this. I think this is very mysterious and interesting. Maybe the girl's spirit came to life to help and warn others that this is a dangerous road. It's very mysterious.

i don't understand it, the same girl died and then came back to life. Or did he travel back in time because her father said she died 40 years ago, and he also said that she died of a boy driving too fast so i dunno.
