Drivers on the 35 km strip between the towns of Lonquimay and Anguil have reported feeling disoriented, then suddenly finding that they've driven several kilometers that they can't remember.
Local UFO researchers are warning drivers in the region about "time anomalies".
Inexplicata offers a translation of a local news report:
Two young men whose duties cause them to travel National Route No. 5 on a regular basis between the communities of Catriló and Santa Rosa reported feeling "disoriented" during the trip on three separate occasions. After several minutes had elapsed, they noticed that they continued the trip without any further incident, but without any recollection of the distance they had already covered.
The stretch of road where this alleged incident occurred is a segment of some 35 kilometers between the towns of Lonquimay and Anguil.
A similar incident befell a driver some ten years ago in the vicinity of Lonquimay. He stopped at a service station to ask "where he was" as he had no idea how he'd gotten there, although he had envisioned driving along that road. The driver continued his journey in the area in question, feeling disoriented once again. He reached the locality of Toay without knowing how he'd accomplished the trip.
The event became widely known and a source of discussion among residents of Lonquimay and its environs, but was not picked up by the media.
For this reason, the Centro de Estudios OVNI issued a communiqué aimed at "people driving along National Route No. 5, specifically the segment between the localities of Lonquimay and Anguil, and who may have sensed time anomalies, should please report it immediately to CEUFO, as we have received reports of three cases at different times and days within the past month."
It's either UFO abductions or mind control gas.
