A green shooting star past at a very high speed and low altitude

As I was driving along with a friend back home, I suddently noticed what seemed to be a green shooting star, that was way too low to be a star, going really fast across the sky. As I am a pilot, I didn't notice any other possible possition lights, any distinct sounds or anything else abnormal. Can't think of it as a firework as it didn't leave any sort of trail, or seemed not to be low enough to be some random fireworks. Estimated altitude was probably 2000' feet or so, going a direction of south/southwest at avery high speed. Couldn't see where the light when to due to trees on the side of the road. I notified my passengers too late for him to witness.
