((NUFORC Note: Date of the incident may be approximate, although the source from the North Carolina Cryptozoological-Paranormal Group does not indicate that fact. We express our sincere gratitude to the source, and to NCCPO, for sharing the interesting report with NUFORC. PD))

All things considered, this is an odd sighting and I cannot possibly begin to explain it.

(This is an official report as written by NCCPO [North Carolina Cryptozoological-Paranormal Organization] lead investigator.) "The witness stated that the object sounded at first like a "Terrible roaring" type sound. A moment later he witnessed what appeared to be an eighteen-wheeler traveling south in the north bound lane.

He moved the car over to the side to avoid any impact with the oncoming object and several moments later a "fireball" that was like a burning tractor trailer roared past his vehicle.

No other reports have been verified and no formal investigation has been launched by NCCPO or any other groups."

The primary witness was a 78 year old male.

This is an odd event and NCCPO figured it would be best to record and place it in a nationwide database in case other witnesses saw the event.
