Argentina seems to be a veritable hotspot of such cases, and there is even a whole road that is known for having a high concentration of these strange incidents. Supposedly, the stretch of National Route 5 connecting Trenque Lauquen and Santa Rosa is absolutely plagued by reports of phenomena such as UFOs, instances of lost time, and teleportation. One commonly reported anomaly is startled drivers suddenly transported from the kilometer 460 marker to the kilometer 580 marker in the blink of an eye, a phenomenon often said to be accompanied by an inexplicable fog that comes from nowhere or mysterious unidentified lights in the sky.
According to UFO researcher Diego Sánchez, one very strange case along Route 5 involved a car mechanic named Carlos Colón, who was driving along the road on August 25, 1999, when his ears were assaulted by a deafening “buzzing sound.” The puzzled driver allegedly pulled over to the side of the road to try and figure out what was going on. He reported that as he had sat there in the car he noticed a group of mysterious humanoid figures creeping through the dark to approach the vehicle. Terrified, Carlos began to exit his car, and at that point the figures apparently vanished and he instantaneously found himself standing out of the vehicle several meters away. At the time the witness says he was overcome by an odd pain emanating from all over his body, as well as profound exhaustion and dizziness.
