bus sized fireball object over 91 about 3-400 ft up going about 150 mph at a downward 20 degree angle

Driving north on I-91 before the Bissel bridge exit around this date and time when I clearly seen a reddish orange fireball about the size of a city bus traveling about 150-200 mph going west and was about 3-500 feet high and was traveling slightly downward.

I was so amazed that I was looking at the cars passengers next to me and pointing towards it but I couldn't tell if they had seen it. I was so certain as to what I saw I almost drove to the area where it may have touched down. I thought it was an airplane engine because of the slow speed but was too big.

I was going to call the area police but I didn't want to sound like a joker. I was watching the news certain that many others saw it and called it in or it was some plane debris that crashed. I found this website on 4/14 so I don't remember the exact date. I've seen all kinds of fireworks ,planes ,meteors and this thing was like a school bus sized object engulfed in fire traveling fairly slow and was only about 1-2 miles away and could see it clearly and for about 4-5 seconds.

After over five years later I still remember like it was yesterday. With all the radio controlled aircraft's today there are probably a lot of ufo hoaxers but this was way too big to be one and I'm sure I wasn't hallucinating or exaggerating. Also I am very surprised that it wasn't on the news or reported elsewhere.
