Massive triangular object over rural Indiana on Interstate 65

On August 29, 2008 at approximately 8:30PM, my son was driving south on I65 in Indiana. He was about 20 miles south of US Route 30. An immense craft was visible in front of his vehicle. He was unable to determine at what height the craft was flying, but he thought it might be somewhere near 150 feet.

The craft was emitting strong strobe-like flashes which gave him the ability to determine that its shape was similar to a wedge of cheese. It was, according to him, certainly triangular.

When the craft came into view, he immediately slowed down from about 70 MPH to below 55 MPH, as did other cars on the interstate. When the craft either flew over his car, or he drove under it, his radio went out for about three to four seconds, as did his GPU.

He slowed further and tried to site the craft again in his rear view mirrors, as well as over his shoulder, and was unable to see any strobe lights or craft. According to my son, he said that people in other cars had clearly seen the same thing and were distraught.

Please understand that my son is not usually accurate with regards to distances, so it is possible that he had traveled further (or shorter) than he told me he had.
