Light in sky got brighter and truck almost stalled out light flickered out.

First I want to say I am not crazy, Iam only posting this because I mentioned my sighting to a co worker who told me to post it. Iam a reserve deputy sheriff what I seen I can't explain. I was travling out of East Machias on Rte 191 when I noticed a light in the sky, that I thought at first was a star but it was getting brighter and brighter, the light was bright white and it did not move, as I drover closer in it's direction it would get brighter, Then my truck started to act like it wanted to stall out. I stoped the truck, when I stoped the truck the light flickered and got dimmer and dimmer till it flickered out. I looked for any other lights like a marker light or a strobe but I could not see a thing. I tried my police raido and it was not working, till I arived home. I am worried about people thinking I'm "nuts" but I'm not This event scared me.
