INTENSE BLUE BEAM OF LIGHT. PARALYZING AFFECT. OBJECT WAS NOT VISIBLE DURING EVENT .

I RECENTLY HEARD OF A TRUCKER IN LOUISIANA WHO WAS HIT BY A BRIGHT BEAM OF LIGHT THAT PULLED HIS TRUCK OVER.

I REALIZE THAT MY EVENT IS MUCH OLDER BUT I HAVE TO TELL SOMEONE.

WE HAD THE SAME THING HAPPEN IN 1978, NEAR SOCCORO, NM. IT WAS ABOUT 03:00 AM WHEN I NOTICED A BLUE LIGHT BESIDE US. IT WAS, IN FACT, FOLLOWING US. IT DID THIS FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES. SUDDENLY, AN INTENSE BEAM OF LIGHT, SIMILAR TO OLD FLASH BULBS, ONLY CONSTANT, HIT JUST THE CAB OF OUR RYDER TRUCK. THE TRUCK SLOWED DOWN AND STOPPED IN THE EMERGENCY LANE OF I25. WE WERE PARALYZED. I COULD ONLY MOVE MY EYES. MY MOM WAS BEHIND US FOLLOWING IN OUR OLD BUICK. SHE WAS FLASHING HERE BRIGHTS ON AND OFF. THE BEAM WAS NOT ON HER. I REMEMBER THAT MY HANDS HAD A TRANSLUCENT LOOK TO THEM. I COULD SEE THE BONES OF MY HAND. I CANT BELIEVE IT HAPPENED TO SOMEONE ELSE.
