The witness was northbound along Highway 160 between mile markers 134 and 135 at 4:10 a.m. on August 27, 2018.
“I saw this thing land in front of my car in the street in my travel lane,” the witness stated. “I didn't know what it was when I saw it and I still don't. I don't know how to feel about it. I have no answers. It was about 4:10 a.m. It was a clear sky. No wind. No clouds. I was a little behind my schedule, so I was going fast – 85 mph. I did have my bright lights on. This event lasted about four or five seconds. I had just finished a small snack. I was listening to some music and then suddenly this thing came from up high and landed in my travel lane on the street. Very tall, seven feet or more, very large wings, smoke gray in color. I couldn't see any eyes. No face. As it was landing the wings were out to each side of it. Once it was on the ground, it wrapped its wings around itself as if it was bracing for an impact. The wings were wrapped around its front. It put its head down slightly and just stood there. It would not move as I approached it. The only thing I could think is, what is that? I cannot crash my car. I cannot hit this thing. It will destroy my car and put me in the hospital. So I said no and turned my wheel slightly to the left. I did this four times as I took my foot off the accelerator to slow my speed as I passed the thing. I did look in my rearview mirror, but it was too dark to see anything. I didn't stop because I didn't know what it was, and I didn't want it to come after me. I just kept saying out loud, what was that, what was that, what was that? Over and over. Where did it come from? What is it? Its body was like a human. Its wings and arms were one unit. There was a car in front by about a half-mile and behind me by about a half-mile. I don't know if anyone else saw it or not. I would like to know if anyone else has seen it. I look for it every day and wonder where it came from.”
