Oddest thing I've ever seen

Driving late one night after a high school event, I was on my way to take my date home. I took a new four lane that wasn't even fully completed yet but was open to the public who's houses it was connected to.

Normally I would never hardly take this way but it was so late and I could run 75 without fear of a ticket due to lack of cops in the area so it was the fastest way to get there. My date had dozed off and fell asleep on the way back to her house and around 2am I was at the halfway point of the new four lane.

I was about to cross a bridge and I look to my right seeing something I cannot explain to this day, a 7 foot tall very wide potato sac floating. At first I hit my brakes thinking it was a deer because they was common in the area and then I realized what it was still running 70-75 with my very bright high beams on and it floated along side my car all the way across the bride and a couple extra hundred some feet and I turn for one second to focus back on the road and looked back to see nothing at all.

Has anyone ever had any experience with anything similar? I constantly think about this even though at the time I was frightened. Everyone I have told including my mother laughed at me and said I was stupid. I was not intoxicated nor was I high 100% sober and very aware of my surroundings.

Any help or answers will be greatly appreciated.

Interesting. If you are certain it wasn't a reflection of something from inside your car projecting onto the window - that's the only optical illusion I've seen whilst driving along a dark road - then that's a pretty weird encounter with the unknown you had there. I've read about similar things reported by people or passengers in cars before - orbs of light floating parallel to the car/truck, strange angel looking figures, Mothman, unusual black shape in broad daylight, UFO's etc., and now a large burlap sack object. Anything's possible! Thanks for sharing. I have no idea what these things are... [More]

†could have been a deflated balloon?† †perhaps one of those metro balloons they used to send in later falling down after cooling off in the upper atmosphere. †

That's actually a pretty good guess, qxc - well done. But .. most weather balloons are made of a type of latex that really does sorta explode, usually into lots of small fragments - they don't often stay in anywhere near one big piece.† There's footage out there of them exploding: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/capital-weather-gang/wp/2017/04/14/watch-a-weather-balloon-explode-100000-feet-high-in-the-atmosphere/ †

I have heard stories from several old truckers, including my Dad who drove long haul for a few years after retiring, about driving at night and seeing black dogs or dark objects pacing the truck as they drive along. They tell me it is a sign they are over tired and it is time to pull off and get some sleep. There were some jokes about "the dogs are running so I am gonna pull off at exit XXX" That it vanished when you got an adrenalin rush makes me feel that is what you saw, a sort of dream event or hallucination caused by impending sleepiness. If not that then, IDK. Thanks for the story.

I got a CDL back when I was 21, and back then you could run two or three logs, so you basically never had to stop if you knew how to manipulate the paperwork.†So I paired up with a guy I went to cdl school with and we ran hard. Almost never had to stop.† One night Iím sleeping in the back, had†only been sleeping a couple hours, when my buddy wakes me up and tells me to move over. Iím like bro, we gotta get back to Jersey by morning why are you going to sleep? He tells me he saw a women in a white flowing dress standing in the middle of the road. Said he was just able to stop†the truck before h... [More]

My guess

My question is why is the woman always wearing a white flowing dress? Hasn't it ever been red or green or black? And why not a mini-skirt?
