Blue streak morphs into flashing lights

I am writing this report for my brother because he wouldn't bother reporting it.

At approximately 4 am pacific time my brother was driving home from work on I-205 south near the I-84 east exit. He ran into some traffic and came to a complete stop. While he was stopped, he decided to pull out his cell phone and take a snapchat video of the horrible traffic to send to his friends. He took the video, and when he went to review it, noticed that he had caught a strange light in his caption. I should mention that he is taking this video from inside his car. His view is looking over the interstate, and an overpass is approximately 1/4 of a mile ahead. In the video, just a few seconds after the it starts, a bright almost neon blue light streaks down from the upper left of the video screen. As the light falls from the sky it disappears for a second, then reappears only to come to a complete stop. It appears that the light is just beyond the overpass 1/4 of a mile ahead. At the same time this blue streak stops, it lights up and flashing lights rotate in a circular! direction around the "craft". The craft then drops very 'mechanically' or abruptly and continues to flash sporadically until the video ends. I should mention that i have a copy of this video on my computer. I will send it to you if you want. Since its a cell phone video, the quality isn't the best, but you can plainly see what I'm describing when you watch it. I should also mention that in the video, my brother is listening to eminem (the rapper). My brother says ((profanity deleted)) part way through the video and it seems he is reacting to the UFO, but he is actually reacting to the bad traffic. It is not till reviewing the video that he notices the light. Thanks!

I appreciate everything you do and I hear you on coast to coast all the time! I have a few more amazing sightings that were from a reliable friend of mine that I could share as well.
