If I had this dream, the first thing I would ask myself is, "Am I going down a destructive path?" I would wonder who was driving the car. I normally associate cars and driving with the direction my life is going and where my journey is taking me. My house would represent myself and all that is important to me. I would not be concerned that I am killed in my dream because I normally associate death in dreams with an end of something with a more abstract meaning. I would explore what has entered my life- a lifestyle, a behavior, a relationship I have entered, etc. that is harmful to me. I would also want to explore the possibility that my dream is reflecting a fear of change and difficulty letting go of old aspects of who I am in order to welcome in something new. I would regard this dream as a "wake up call" since I am even sleeping and then waking up in the dream. The dream would serve the purpose of alerting me to something I need to change or modify in my life.
