Oklahoma fireball

as I was leaving the parking lot at my workplace, I was traveling north, slowing up for a stop sign. I saw the cloudy sky directly in front of me turn bright blue & then I saw an orange ball travel across the sky in front of me. The object was moving from the SE to the NW. It had a long tail of yellow sparks. The sighting lasted for only a couple of seconds as it was moving very fast. Within approx 15 seconds of my sighting, I heard over my scanner one of our local police officers say "Did anyone else see that?" A second police officer replied "That's a big affirmative" The skies were very overcast last night and I felt like the blue flash was the object reflecting off the underside of the clouds.
