A Washington witness driving along Interstate 5 in Vancouver approaching the Padden Parkway overpass reported a 7-foot-tall, translucent entity crossed the roadway, according to February 8, 2014, testimony in Case 53965 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was approaching the overpass about 2:45 a.m. on January 31, 2014, and "slammed on my brakes" when the 'entity' appeared in the middle of the road.
"I saw a being hovering about 5 feet above the ground in the middle of the freeway of the fast lane (I think it was in the process of crossing the freeway)," the witness stated. "It was about one and-a-half car lengths in front of me. It was staring straight at me and all I could feel from it was extreme fear."
The witness described the entity.
"The being was translucent in appearance, about 7 feet tall. It had long lanky limbs. It did not appear to be clothed yet did not look naked as it was reflecting everything around it like you could see through it but it still obviously had a definite form. It had a human-like form except that it had two semi-long flaps of skin/hair (was hard to distinguish due to its translucence appearance) that was attached the the head (from its profile it looked like it had slicked its hair/flaps back. The head was smooth and graduated into those two flaps by the nape of its neck. They were about 6 inches long."
The witness reported that the entity immediately began to move.
"Then it faced east and took off running. However, it did not run like a human being or any animal I've seen. It ran with its whole body contorting/bending in half in a repetitive motion fast while hovering. It did this extremely fast, leaving sort of a trail or impression of itself across the freeway. It ran across the median to the other side and into the bushes on the other side of the northbound freeway where an on ramp meets the I-5."
The witness had come to a complete stop.
"The whole time I stayed idling in my lane on the freeway. From the time I saw it and slammed on my brakes to the time in took off running across the freeway, everything was in extreme slow motion, like time was altered. It felt like the whole event took 10 minutes, but in reality the clock had only changed a minute at most. I was the only car on the road. It was foggy, but the area where the entity was, the area had no fog and the street light gave a golden orange glow to everything. The entity seemed to absorb this light. The being did not seem to have defined features. Then I drove on, freaked out!"
