A UFO Crash in Idaho

By October 17, 2011

Follow me on:

Depending on where you look, there are lists around the Net that count UFO landing and crashes. Some of these are legitimate, some are not. Many of them are nothing more than hearsay, with no real evidence.

However, here we have an eyewitness account of a crashed saucer in a remote area of Idaho. Not only did the witness see a large, crashed UFO, but he was spotted by the men guarding the site, and chased up a mountain road.

See his riveting account at 2001 UFO Crash in Idaho, and be sure to comment as you wish.

This has the makings of ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ which in fact I highley regard. Its very difficult for people that see things that they hold in their memories for a long time unable to speak about it but strangely they do. Unsuspecting would we think at first it was a circus or the makings of ‘Close Encounters 2′ or do we disbelieve him entirely. Billy finds some interesting stories doesnt he.

Although the story is interesting, it appears right out of a fiction puplication. The distance between Idaho Falls and Jackson isn’t very far, although through some mountainous terrain. If there was something the military didn’t want you to see, they would have blocked the road off. The person would have to return over the same road and go to work again, wouldn’t he have checked out the area the next day ? How long does it take to clean up a saucer crash ? Wouldn’t it still be there next day, wouldn’t someone else notice the same thing ? Maybe it was some type of military experiment.

I find it suspicious when all these reports are always 10, 20, 30 years old when nothing can be checked and nobody else can recall anything abnormal.

What I don’t understand is why he would speed away when the men in white coats pointed to his car and followed him. If this was a normal siting I think any normal person would drive up as close as possible, try to get out of the car for a better look, or at least stop and ask someone what is going on. He goes on to say he was being chased through the mountain roads. But why was he fleeing in the first place? It makes no sense to me.

Reads like it was written by a Stephen King wannabee.
If the authorities did not want anyone there, they would have blocked the road ten miles on either side.

Believe me folks, you never know what you will actually do till it happens to you and your brain processes the information and self preservation is what it usually comes up with. The people in charge of the scene never expected to see anyone out there in the dark of night. Once they leave the well lit cities they feel there is nothing around them. I think the person involved made the correct decision or he would of been the next missing person and too old to be on a milk carton and forgotten.

A note of consideration- it is very easy to sit back and second guess from the comfort of your own arm chair what a person should do in such a situation. But consider the circumstances of the moment by someone who states he was not a believer in such phenomena. On his way to work he is suddenly confronted with something beyond his wildest imagination. While he might not consciously be thinking analytically or critically, his subconscious is drawing on his cumulative prior experience- to include perhaps seeing such situations protrayed in movies, etc. The military in such instances is invariably portrayed (and usually accurately so) as controlling, domineering and threatening. At the moment he reallized they were reacting to his presence, their actions could easily have been perceived as threatening– pointing excitedly at him, taking to their vehicles and initiating pursuit. I dare say most would react with a good bit of fear and trepidation. Consider also that his locale– mountainous roads- could provide a viable explanation for an “accident” where he drove off a cliff- and silenced permanently. Finally, there is also the realization that he did see a crashed UFO- and a big one, at that. That would shake up anyone.

I agree Wink..Speaking from a personal upclose point of view, I can understand how any one would do any thing when confronted with this type of scenario…I’ve had a few Eye-Opening other world experiences that sound more like a chapter in some Sci-Fi book than real life…which is why I have seldomed shared it with the average bear out there..who wants to be beat up with negatives over something that is still difficult to understand myself after all these years..no one..and I will bet the farm that there are countless others who have had incredible experiences they will take to the grave because they know they couldn’t handle the morons…

One more comment for consideration. I live close to the mountains not all that far from the area in question. There are vast areas that are uninhabited, completely forested, full of ravines and mountain peaks, inaccessible. I find it very considerate of the UFO occupants to have crashed their craft right next to the only road in the area. It is a also peculiar that the military could sneak all those vehicles in without anyone noticing. If you check out the “supposed” route on google maps, the police would shut down the road to clean up a major accident, I’m sure the army would have it shut down to clean up a UFO crash. And just how many racoons are on these mountainous roads, I’ve travelled them for years and have never seen one, deer yes, but nary a racoon.

well,it was probably an escape ship or shuttle the mothership uses to explore worlds. maybe also it was some kind of interplanetary police officer out on patrol. Maybe malfunctioned and had to descend. maybe on a survival mission or training. maybe something interesting to them there.Maybe dropped off an expedition of some kind.Maybe a reporter gathering news and stuff.

At first pass the story seems real but reading it again some things just don’t add up. Why didn’t the military block the road off? If something as fantastic as an alien spaceship crashed in the woods you would think they’d want to make sure no one else got to it. Maybe he did see something. Who’s to say for sure. It’s convenient that he was the only witness.

Another disappointing effort by some nobody trying to be a somebody. There must be 1000s of these reports. I notice that, according to the story, the man was on a road able to see the entire scene below: but then he gives a description of the under side of the “space ship.” The “colored lights” are classic booby tales: apparently these not very bright people need “lights” to high light their tall tales, so it’s part of the formula for giving UFO reports.

I got some hesitant feelings about UFO “crashes.” There’s how many now, the famous one in New Mexico and the old one in Texas. Russia has one and there’s another in Australia(?). So, how does it work out that aliens with advanced technology that they use to travel at least 100s of light-years or even inter-dimensionally end up crashing? I think it’s kind’a weird. Either that, or so much for high-tech. If that’s the case, I say, let’s return to hunting and gatherering and the hell with a sci-fi future.
