The witness and his partner were driving from Redditch through Hanbury and were about on Astwood Lane at 2:30 a.m. on April 10, 2018.
“We usually do go for a drive on the night and listen to music and get some fast food at the 24-hour drive-through,” the witness stated. “As we got onto Astwood Lane, I noticed in my rearview mirror four separate dim lights, which at first I thought was a car on the road behind us. This was until I looked again in my mirror and saw that the four lights started to pulsate off and then on. Imagine car headlights with the fog lights on also, the shape would almost be a rectangle with four lights. When the lights started to pulsate, the two top lights on the left and the right pulsated and joined together with the two lower pulsating lights. And when this happened, I stopped the car immediately and said to my partner, ‘What the hell was that?’”
The witness then stopped his car and the lights behind vanished.
“My car is still in stationary, and as me and my partner went to go again, into my car the brightest white light pierced through my back window and illuminated the whole of my car inside, to the point where even when my partner and I were looking straight ahead, we couldn't see anything apart from white light. I couldn't even see my dashboard or any of my lights—it was that intense. Then my partner and I screamed our heads off, saying I love you, etc. and almost crying. I put my car in first gear and put my foot down, and we got to a speed of 60 to 70 mph with the light dimming as we were getting farther away. And then I looked in my rearview mirror, and a huge face in a grayscale effect along with the white light seemed to be pressed against or in the boot of my car. I looked at my partner to say, ‘Did you see that?’ and she screamed so loud and started to cry, so we carried on driving so fast on a country lane to save our lives. . . .”
Very shortly the face was gone.
“As we drove so fast whilst screaming and shaking with bodies full of goosebumps, the face just vanished. I was so scared for my life. We came to a left turn at the end of Astwood Lane and took the turn, and I cannot remember exactly the road, as I was too frightened to take notice. As we got away from the light as I was coming around a bend in the road, we checked the rearview mirror again to notice orange lights in a similar shape to the first four lights at the start, but hovering along the road behind us and pulsating brighter and brighter, until we came to a building with a few street lights to the left of us. I stopped the car and my partner and I got out of the car so I could check the boot of my car to see if what we had seen was inside the car or against it whilst I was driving at 60-70 mph.”
The witness was convinced something was inside the vehicle.
“I opened the boot and then realized nothing was there. We jumped back in the car and drove to Redditch without any hesitation to get out of Hanbury. As I got back home, I dropped my partner off at hers, and I was so scared and excited that I woke my mom up to tell her my experience.”
