Location: Kansas (on interstate), KS
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Low flying object with light shining down on road , apparently a helicopter which made no noticeable noise.

I was driving across Kansas on my way to California. It was late at night and i had just left a truck stop where i had a cup of coffee.

About 100 yards off the road to my left, there was what appeared to be an accident, where someone had rolled over out in the field. There was what appeared to be emergency vehicles there with what looked like a floodlight on the vehicle. I didn't stop because there was no need to with what seemed to be emergency vehicles attending. Actually the whole scene seemed surreal.

As i continued down the two lane highway, I remember listening to Art Bell on coast to coast radio and there was a show on that was sort of a take off on that 1948 radio show with Orson Welles and "War of the Worlds." I remember that on the show, there were alien spacecraft landing around the United States. I remember being momentarily sort of alarmed as i was listening to the broadcast.

A couple of minutes later, I noticed a light ahead of me shining down on the road and coming towards me. I assumed that the light was from a medivac helicopter going to the rollover accident to evacuate injured people.

As the light shining down on the road approached and flew over my vehicle I noticed that there was no noise coming from the object which was at a very low altitude (i'd guess no more than 100 ft or so). I remember how strange it was that a helicopter could be flying that low and make no noticeable noise. I remember looking in my rear view mirror and saying to myself, what the "F" was that thing.

Basically, I forgot about the whole incident until a couple of years ago when I was talking to my son about UFO's while we were having dinner at an Applebee's Restaurant. Suddenly I just remembered the incident.... as if it was a dream though, and not something that actually took place.

He talked to a friend of his who said that I probably had been abducted by a ufo and that they planted the false memories of the accident and the coast to coast show to mask the incident to me. Personally, i don't really know.

The whole thing still seems pretty surreal as if it happened but it didn't happen.
