This would be an outstanding episode were it not for the fact that it seems to be an uncredited adaptation of Ray Bradbury's 1948 short story "The Crowd" -- even the title is similar. The basic plot -- accident victim sees the same people over and over again at accident scenes -- is exactly the same with a few changes. Bradbury's name appears nowhere in the credits. An oversight -- or plagiarism? Other than that this is intriguing and creepy and star David Hedison gives one of his best performances. Rather a nice adaptation all told -- it's just odd that Bradbury wasn't given an acknowledgment, especially as the story is fairly well-known.
