Another testimony for the "unidentified craft" file

"In the night from Friday to Saturday around 2 o'clock in the morning, I was going back from Buchy, at the wheel from my 4 CV [ordinary French car], and prepared to engage on the R.N. [National Road] 28, from Neufchatel to Rouen, Mr. R. I... said, when I witenssed the following scene:

"I had exceeded the level crossing by 500 meters approximately when I suddenly saw a gleam, which seemed to station on the right edge of the road, at a hundred meters in front of me. At once, the "thing" took off and flees towards the north, but instead of rising vertically, as usual, the craft seemed to undulate at a few meters of the ground. The gleam, of a greenish white, was regularly intermittent and seemed to precede a dark mass which seemed to progress by jumps at a speed that I estimate about 150 km/hour.

"Arriving at the level where the machine was when I saw it, I do not know what occurs, but I felt like paralysed, and from 90 km per hour, the speed at which I drove, I soon had to go in second gear, without having been aware that I voluntarily slowed down.

"I do not claim to have been subjected to an external influence, but not being accustomed to be impressed by nothing, I cannot explain such an effect of " inhibition "...

This testimony is all the more worthy of faith as it comes from a personality extremely well-known from Rouen, who is not considered to be gullible.

[Ref. jg1:] JIMMY GUIEU:

Science-fiction writer and pioneer ufologist Jimmy Guieu notes that he personally knows the witness of this case, his friend Mr. R.L., of Rouen, that he judges to be a solid man, absolutely sincere, which was frightened but did not yield to panic. He provides his friend's account:

At 2 o'clock in the morning of Saturday, November 13, 1954, he was returning from Buchy in the Seine-Maritime at the wheel of his 4CV car and was on the point of getting on national road RN 28 from Neufchatel to Rouen. He had exceeded the railway crossing of 500 meters approximately when he suddenly saw a gleam, that seemed to be posed on the right side of the road at a hundred meters in front of him. The thing took off at once and fled towards the north, without rising vertically, but undulating at a few meters above ground-level.

It was a gleam of a white greenish which to was regularly intermittent and seemed to precede a dark mass while appearing to progress by jumps at a speed that he estimated as of 150 km/h.

When he arrived at the level where the machine was when he first saw it, he did not understand what occurred when he felt strange ticklings on all his body and felt like paralyzed. He had driven at 90 km/h but he had to go in second gear, without being aware to have voluntarily slowed down.

The luminous object moved away, ended up disappearing and he could drive normally again.

[Ref. mc1:] "MICHEL CARROUGES":

The author indicates that on November 13, 1954 in the Seine-Maritime, R.L. in a car sees a craft taking off with an intermittent white-greenish gleam at 100 meters in front of him at the edge of the road. When he arrives at the level where the craft had been he feels prickling and an effect of paralysis.

The source is indicated as "G. II. p. 170."

[Ref. jv1:] JACQUES VALLEE:

Jacques Vallée indicates that on November 13, 1954, close to Buchy, a luminous apparatus flew away while the witnesses were paralysed and felt swarmings. The engine of their car slowed down, but did not stall.

Nov. 13, 1954 Buchy (France).

At intersection of Routes N28 and N319, Mr. R. L., of Rouen, saw a luminous craft take off while he felt ticklings and was paralyzed. The engine of the car slowed down but did not stall. (Quincy).

[Ref. gl1:] CHARLES GARREAU AND RAYMOND LAVIER:

The two authors indicate that the case in Buchy in the Seine-Maritime of November 13, 1954 is sparsely documented in Jacques Vallée's catalogue and LDLN for January 1970:

At the intersection of the roads RN 28 and RN 319, Mr. R.L., of Rouen, saw a luminous machine taking off, he then felt ticklings and was paralyzed. His car's engine had slowed down but did not stop.

[Ref. fr1:] MICHEL FIGUET AND JEAN-LOUIS RUCHON:

The two authors indicate that on November 13, 1954, at 2 hours of the morning, Mr. R.L., a personality of Rouen and a relation of the ufologist and science-fiction writer Jimmy Guieu returned in a 4CV car from Buchy on the secondary road D 919 and was on the point of starting on national road RN 28 from Neufchatel to Rouen and had just exceeded a railway crossing of 500 meters approximately, when he saw a white greenish gleam which seemed to be posed on the right edge of the road at a hundred meters of him.

That took off at once while undulating, at a few meters of the ground. The gleam is regularly intermittent and seems to precede a dark mass which advances by jumps at a speed that he estimated as of 150 km/h.

At the time when he arrived at the level of the landing spot, he felt strange ticklings on all the body and felt paralyzed. "from 90 km/h, the speed at which he drove, he had to go in second gear, without to have been aware to have voluntarily slowed down."

The object moved away and all was normal again.

The authors quote Jacques Vallée, Jimmy Guieu, Guy Quincy and the newspaper Paris-Normandie for November 15, 1954, as sources.

[Ref. lg1:] LOREN GROSS:

November 13th. Buchy, France. (3:30 a.m.)

Resting on the ground next to the intersection of Routes N28 and N319 at Rouen, France, was a luminous object that gave off flickering green-white rays of light. A motorist with the initals "R.L.," had trouble with his car's electric system as his vehicle passed the UFO. Although the engine missed a lot, it did not completely fail. The driver experienced paralysis and a prickling sensation. 51.
