|A craft chased us down a rural deserted road in Central Florida on Sunday, December 17, 2006.
My husband and I were driving southbound on 441 between Fort Drum and Okeechobee, FL, on Sunday, December 17, 2006, approx. 5:15pm EST. We had left the turnpike to avoid the crowds and to get a glimpse of the sunset over Lake Okeechobee on our way home to SW Broward county. This is a very remote area west of Ft. Pierce lined with thousands of acres of cattle ranches and sugar cane fields. As it was late Sunday afternoon there were very little, if any, other vehicles on the road.
Suddenly we came upon a flock of birds behaving very erractically. They were sort of disorientated-swarming like insects. Two birds actually crashed into a billboard and hit the ground. We found this to be very strange and disturbing.
About 30 seconds later my husband remarked that he hadn't seen a car behind us for at least twenty miles.I pulled down my visor with a mirror on it and saw some headlights and said "Well, there's one now." A vehicle was on the road behind us about 1 mile back. I looked up in the mirror again and saw that this "vehicle" was quickly approaching in a "hyper-jump" kind of way. I looked again and the thing was practically on our bumper. I yelped and my husband shouted "This guy's not gonna pass us- he's gonna ram us!" I pulled my visor down to a different angle to get a better view and that's when I saw that this "vehicle" had no tires/wheels!! (It was shiny like chrome with a arrangement of lights like I'd never seen.) Of course we were very excited at this point and my husband swerved to the shoulder of the road thinking that this thing would hit us. We turned our heads to the left in unison and it literally disappeared in front of our very eyes. We jumped out of the car and looked up down and all around and there was nothing there.
Conditions were very warm, daylight, clear skies, flat land, and very quiet. This craft emitted no sound! I haven't slept in three nights...................
