hands, nor the feet was visible. When she asked, "What do
you want?" the answer, in English, was: "One of our party
knows you; we will return. " The object then decreased in
size, tilted, partially sank into the ground, grew to its
previous size, and departed to the east, producing steam, a
flash, and a noise. Suddenly blinded by a vivid white
light which enveloped his vehicle. Simultaneously, he felt a
burn on his face. He then braked but the vehicle skidded,
left the road and became bogged down in the mud. The driver
found himself in the presence of three strange beings with
the gait of robots. Nearby he saw an oval-shaped object with
portholes emitting a harsh light. Picking up his revolver,
he fired four shots at the beings, who fled to the object.
It then took off and flew around the truck several times,
each time causing the driver to feel burns all over his
body. Examination by a doctor revealed that the burns were
'curious lesions' of undetermined cause."
