Characteristics: The object made a sound, There were electrical or magnetic effects
While traveling on the same road for three consecutive nights, at about the same time each night, all power on my vehicle suddenly stopped. All lights went out, the radio, all electrical equipment, while the engine kept running. I got out of the vehicle to see what was wrong and heard a loud humming. I could not see anything even though it was a clear night. The trees and a nearby water tower blocked the view that I thought was near the sound I heard. This was a realtively new vehicle at the time and had never experienced any electrical problems whatsoever. It never experienced any electrical problems after the incidents. While I am not certain it was connected to a UFO sighting, I had heard of vehicles that had experienced UFO's with the same type of symptons. I am interested if any other folks have experienced similar incidents. I will never forget the erie feeling that I had, especially after it happend three times in a row in the exact same place at about the exact time.

After my first encounter with the incident I made it a point to drive slowly through the same area during the next htree evenings thinking that something might be wrong with my vehicle. Nothing was wrong with my vehicle. I had it checked out the following day after the first incident and the electrician said he couldnt find anything wrong with it.
