Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Apparently coming from files of ufologist Don Vorley, a short summary says that on August 30, 1978, at approximately 11:45 p.m., in Union County, Indiana, the USA, a woman drove on state road 44 in a valley close to a bridge, when she saw ahead, low above the road, an orange egg-shaped object accompanied by four smaller orange-red objects of squareish appearances.

Light reportedly suddenly engulfed her car and she does not remember anything of what occurred then, until she found herself driving approximately 5 miles further on the road.

At home, she was reportedly troubled mentally, and reportedly discovered two punctures wounds on her buttocks and small pieces of one does not know what mid chest.

[Ref. fr1:] FRANCIS RIDGE:

Francis Ridge reports that on August 30, 1978, an abduction was reported at 11:45 p.m. in Union County, Indiana.

The witness was driving her car on State Route 44 in a valley near a bridge when ahead, low over the road, she saw an orange egg shaped object accompanied by four small orange-red square-looking objects..

A light suddenly engulfed her car and she remembers nothing until she found herself about five miles further down the road than she had been when the light appeared.

The source is indicated as "Geobibliography of Anomalies, Eberhart."

[Ref. ni1:] "THE NICAP WEBSITE":

Aug. 30, 1978; Union County, IN

About 11:45 PM. Witness driving on State road 44 in valley near bridge. Ahead low over the road she observed an orange egg shaped object accompanied by 4 small orange-red square-looking objects. Light suddenly engulfed her car and she remembers nothing until she found herself driving about 5 miles down the road. At home troubled mentally and discovered two puncture wounds on her buttocks and small lumps in mid chest. (Worley files)

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 30 August 1978 at 23:45 on State Route 44, near Union County, Illinois [sic], USA, there was a close encounter of the third kind, "Translocation, missing time. Orange ovoid low over intersection SR44 and Highway 4. Car illuminated by beam, missing time, driver recovers consciousness 5 miles down highway."

And: "Witness reported that a period of time could not be accounted for. One orange ovoid object, about 20 feet across, was observed on a highway for ten minutes."

The sources are indicated as "Ridge, Francis, Regional Encounters; Hatch, Larry, *U* computer database, Author, Redwood City, 2002".

Points to consider:

There is no experience with any entity in this case, the "abduction" is entirely speculated.

There is a terrible lack of data.
