[Ref. js1:] JEAN SIDER:

French author and ufologist Jean Sider brings back the indications of the local newspaper L'Ardennais of October 15, 1954:

On October 13, at 08:00 P.M., in Montimont near to Vrignes-aux-Bois, in the Ardennes, Mr. Sadi LÚvy saw two odd beings in front of his car.

The car's engine brutally stopped. Once the two curious characters were gone, the engine restarted. Jean Sider specifies that the newspaper does not indicate how the engine restarted, if it was by itself or by action of the starter.

Jean Sider indicates that the article of the L'Ardennais, Sedan, for October 15, pages 4 and 16-17, excepted skeptical remarks, said:

"Mr. Sadi LÚvy. It is a completely bewildered man whom the owners Mr. and Mrs. Jean Poggiali and the waitresses of the coffee "La Croix de Maltse" in Sedan, places Turenne, saw come in their establishment Wednesday evening towards 8 p.m.. It should be said that Mr. Sadi LÚvy, reseller of farming machines, residing place of the Market at Sedan, has some family tie with the owners of the coffee shop, which explains why he wanted to tell his adventure to the first people he knew he met on his road. Short-breathed, and still in prey of an extraordinary emotion, Mr. LÚvy told his amazed listeners a confusing incident. He was going back from Vrigne-ux-Bois driving his traction [car model] when near the brickyard of Montimont, the car stopped suddenly. Horrified, Mr. LÚvy saw in his headlights two strange and terrifying forms: two small beings of a phosphorescent green with large eyes and a tail, according to what he said. Then, the extraordinary vision disappeared and the car restarted. What did Mr. LÚvy exactly see? Was he the victim of an hallucination? One thing is sure: his panic noted little time afterwards by several witnesses. The Gendarmerie, which heard of the affair, opened an investigation on this matter."

An unidentifiable object and its occupants were observed at close range on a road for a few minutes. Three little green men were seen."
