A Story of The Invaders

Highway 640, which led to Auto City, centre of the United States automobile industry, had a jinx on it. Crash after crash occurred - and yet there were few deaths; each time the driver of the car would emerge miraculously unhurt, and though his eyes might be dull and zombie-like, though he might have a misshapen finger, little things of that sort were unremarkable in a man who had escaped death so luckily.

Only David Vincent recognised that these were the signs of the Invaders, that they were engineering crashes and, at the moment of death, taking possession of their victims' bodies. . .

A 'spin-off' story from the popular American television series The Invaders, broadcast by ATV in the UK.
