Mike's making up the tale.

* In [[WelcomeToTheCaribbeanMon Jamaica]], there are many stories of this nature, in relation to the deadly Kendal Train Crash which happened on September 1, 1957 when the train derailed, claiming 186 lives as a result. According to one such story, a taxi driver picked up two well-dressed women who specified a certain address to him, and on their arrival the two got out of the car and went into the house. The driver assumed they were getting money to pay their fare, but when they did not come back after several minutes, he honked his horn impatiently, grabbing the attention of an old man from inside the house. When the driver explained why he honked his horn and described the two women, the old man exclaimed, "Those were my two sisters; they died in the train crash." The driver immediately fainted.
