Large bright white/blue light travelling across the sky in a downward trajectory

I saw a large blue/white light traveling across the sky around 6:30am. I was driving westbound on 696, getting off to go north on Telegraph, and saw a bright white/blue light streaking from right to left across my windshield. It looked like a meteor to me because it was traveling incredibly fast and was heading downwards and there was no sound whatsoever. The object appeared to be a few miles away and started at about 1000 ft and then continued downward on an angle. I was expecting some sort of impact but when it got to about 250 ft from the ground the light disappeared (and did not move behind any building). The light seemed to shut off and whatever it was seemed to stop moving and dimmed out to the same brightness as a star. After that I did not see anything else.
