I almost crashed my car into a ufo when it was parked on the ground blocking my passage on the road.

I surprised a ufo when driving my car blocking the road in front of the direction of my travel.
I was convinced we were going to crash and locked up all four wheels of my car trying to stop in time.
The craft lifted off the ground and moved forward and I passed under with only the width of a hand between the roof of my car and the bottom of craft.
I was able to get a good look at the front detail but missed the side detail as i was passing under it.
When i came to a halt and jumped out of my car I was able to see the rear which was completely different to the front.
There is a report in your gallery where a guy drew hundreds of small holes on his saucer shaped object, but mine was not saucer shaped but had holes in a matrix pattern all around the front no windows or any other marks.
When i was able to observe the rear there was a square box like a foil and inside of that box shape was hundreds of little lights and probe like things.
The craft moved away from me at about fast walking speed and i watched it.
This was deserted country road with the sun just setting so it became hard to pick out after a time as it was beginning to blend with the lights of a near by town.
I stood there for maybe five or ten minutes and had lost sight of it and was going to give up and continue my journey.
Just as i was going to leave I saw a flash of light streak up and south ward into the sky on the horizon from where the craft would have been.
I knew people would ask me questions on what I saw and I was straining to pick up detail around the front but even though i was just meters away from it there was a haze like a heat haze and was hard to focus on the fine detail.
The rear of the craft did not have this haze and was Cristal clear.
For several days after this happened my eyes were saw like a arc welder flash, which I think from trying to stare into the front detail.
