Possible UFO/Plane Crash Near Owatonna, Minnesota

Was driving Eastward, when 3 distinct lights were noticed. A very bright white light was what caught my attention first. That's when I realized there were 2 more, red and green lights.

At first these lights struck me right away as if to be a plane crashing because of the speed of which the object(s) were moving from top of my windshield to ground level. I initially searched to see if there were any plane crashes in the area at all. The main part that struck me as a plane was the brightest light, the white, and then the green and red lights both on a side of the white one. There was part tree cover and suburb cover that blocked my view of the potential crash site.

I also did not hear any "boom" of an explosion of any plane type of craft.

From what I could estimate from the trees and houses in the way, it seemed to be at least a few miles out, but not further than about 10. I am also a night sky hobbyist and definitely know the difference between a meteor shooting across the sky and whatever this may have been. I did drive to where I had estimated a "crash site" of the object. Drove along many back roads within a few miles of my estimated "crash site" to find nothing but eerily empty gravel roads surrounding Eastern Owatonna North of Highway 14.
