triangle shape ufo N salem

I was driving with two friends of mine in the country roads north of Salem. The road came to a straight a way and in the distance I saw what appeared to be headlights coming over the hill. Then it got closer, raised itself above the hills, and looked like two sets of bright headlights on top of each other. It was right in our path getting ready to cross over my car. I saw a triangle shaped object with the 4 bright "headlights" and a red blinking light underneath it.We panicked because we didnt want to be right under it, so I veered off the road onto a dirt road out of its path. It started to turn towards us, and by that time my friends were watching it and I was trying to drive as fast away from it as possible. Unfortunately I drove down a dead end. So i stopped and turned the car around. When I did, the object was accross a huge field about 6-7 football stadiums away. All within a few seconds. I decided to report this after I saw more people in the same area saw the same thing within a few days. It was strange, but I dont believe we had any missing time or anything. It was all within a few mins.
