white ball of light streaks to earth; makes a 90 degree turn and streaks out of sight

Saturday Dec 8 2001 1:22 a.m. Pasadena Ca I was driving home from work on the 210 freeway between the Fairoakes cutoff and the lake Ave. cutoff in Pasadena when my eye caught a ball of light streaking extremely fast to the earth; when it was about two to five thousand feet from the ground it made a 90 degree turn and streaked in to the distance and out of sight. The whole incident lasted about 7 seconds.

I witnessed that meteor shower a short time ago, so this clearly was no meteor.

It was a white ball of light.

Iam a restaurant owner and had just closed my restaurant and was driving home ((name deleted))
