Dallas, TX - 08-07-09
The UFO Casebook received the following information, along with two photographs from a reader.
Time: 9:00 pm - 9:30 pm on I-20 in Dallas. Weather was clear. There were numerous witnesses but no names as people were calling into the radio station I was listening to as well as others after I switched stations. My name is James Garza.
I was actually listening to the radio in Irving, TX, when the DJ said that a lot of people where calling in and saying that there was a truck on I-20 with a UFO on the bed of the truck.
It was being followed by what looked like miltary and police.This was kind of like what they do when a big name politician comes into town where they close the highway down for them. I remember they did that for Donald Rumsfeld when he was here about 2 1/2 years ago.
I then switched to another radio station since the one I was listening to went to commerical, and after awhile of listening they said they were getting calls in about the same thing. I don't know if it was for a movie or what, but if it was wouldn't they have closed the highway down before hand?
There were still civilians on the road at the time. I would have sent this sooner, but I don't have Internet at home and have to do it at work.
In a later e-mail, the reporter also told me that several of the callers said that they could see smoke or steam coming from the UFO on the flatbed truck.
A Little Research
After reading the information above, we began to search for more details of this alleged incident. This is what we found.
We were able to determine that at least one radio station, 97.9 The Beat - Call Letters KBFB, did in fact go live with caller input about the incident above. Here is a report made by another person on a forum.
This one has been getting some press. Itís allegedly pictures of a UFO on the back of an 18-wheeler going down I-20. A man called the local radio station 97.9 the Beat, claiming that he took the pics and there were several government cars following the flatbed which was carrying the massive UFO.
Police escorts were forcing people to exit and shutting down ramps getting onto the highway. It actually looks real, but of course the pics are blurry as hell and hard to see.
Itís easy to declare as fake at first glance, but it starts getting fishy when you take into account that the radio station has been told not to replay the audio, and their email system has allegedly gone automatic. Government intervention? Who knows these days.
The pics first appeared on Twitter and have been generating quite a stir. Is it so crazy to think the government is transporting a UFO down a highway on a flatbed.
Many people have even stated that they believe this could be a prop. Okay... maybe. BUT... props are typically moved in stages, and are not guarded by unmarked black Tahoes and Hummers accompanied by Dallas Police Department.
At this point in time, we are lacking in corroborative info. It does appear to be quite unlikely that the Dallas Police Department would escort a government parade of an uncovered UFO down Interstate 1-20. However, stranger things have happened.
I have not been able to confirm from the radio station that they have been asked to not report on the callers of August 7. Of course, if this was true, they probably could not respond about the situation.
If any of you who live in the Dallas, Ft. Worth area, heard the call-ins, saw the incident mentioned above, or know someone who did, please tell us what you know, by sending us an email.
