Instead, it's explained that indigenous people also encountered the grounds but fled after discovering its power.
In the woods today, Ellie discovered a charming little landmark.
Ellie: The Pet Sematary.
Louis Creed: A place to bury our pets and remember them. I know it seems scary, but it's not. Perfectly natural, just like dying is natural.
When the tanker truck swerved to avoid Gage the trailer becomes detached from the tractor which leads to the tragic death. However, in real life this would not have happened, and the whole truck unit would have simply crashed into the ditch.
