Sheriff Weir Clem, who said he observed the phenomenon personally, reported one witness, James D. Long, a truck driver from Waco, Tex., fainted from fright.
Clem and Long drove to the object while it appeared to be halted in a road about 4 miles west of Levelland, which is 32 miles west of Lubbock.
Long reported the object, about 200 feet long and shaped like an egg, “cut off the engine and lights on his truck.” When the object took off again, Long told the sheriff, his engine and lights came back on.
