What happens to a soul when a person dies in an accident?
Much will depend where the person is in their life spiritually and what they experienced in previous incarnations. If the person is advanced spiritually in this life or previous lives, the consciousness of the person can leave just before death and watch the happening without negative emotions, but with an inner knowing that this is transition time. As written about regarding suicide. If they are spiritually aware (not religious aware,) they will experience an easy knowing transition to another level of consciousness, that is welcoming, and they will transcend into a new reality. For those who do not have any spiritual awareness they will generally go through a short period of blankness, and gradually become aware of another reality. However, much will depend on their beliefs and knowledge in this life time as this affects the transition.
