The question is: did they want to taste the feeling?

Last week in Mexico, a Coca Cola truck belonging to a company in the city of Monclova lost control and ended up on its side. Thousands of bottles were wasted and diabetes was dealt a heavy blow that day. But it wasn’t until the dust had settled that the unusual circumstances leading to the accident became clear.

Last Friday, a truck carrying the carbonated soft drink was making its way on Highway 53, near the town of Espinazo, Nuevo Leon when the driver lost control and prematurely completed his journey in a ditch on the side of the road. Some co-workers traveling with him in two other cars and another truck notified the company and took photos showing the accident from different angles. Nothing unusual so far.

It was only after they left the crash site that they noticed a strange object appearing in the majority of their photos. This is strong evidence towards proving the object was real and not a camera artifact.

“We never noticed anything until that night, when someone saw the photos and told us us what had happened,” one of the workers told local press.

As it turns out, the unidentified flying object appeared in photos taken by 12 other employees. It’s one thing when a single device malfunctions and starts showing things that maybe aren’t really there, but when a dozen of them show the same thing from different angles you can’t evoke that pretext.

While no statements from the truck driver say that, we can reasonably assume he would have been paying attention to the UFO and not the road if the alien craft entered his field of view. Wouldn’t you do the same?

And there’s another aspect to this story that lends credence to the UFO hypothesis. One employee recalls that, as they were driving, the radio stopped working for no particular reason.

“We wanted to put some music on but the stereo refused to work. Later, as we were driving to our homes, it started running smoothly. Something happened, but we did not realize until we saw the pictures.”

Hmm, radio silence in Mexico. Where have we heard that before? Oh, right, on UFOholic:

The Bolsón de Mapimi basin in Mexico is home to a very strange area called La Zona del Silencio – The Silent Zone. Located between the states of Durango, Chihuahua and Coahuila, this area achieved notoriety thanks to a number of unexplained anomalies.

The Zone of Silence first gained attention in the 1930s, when a Mexican airplane pilot named Francisco Sarabia experienced some difficulties while flying over the mysterious patch of desert. The instruments aboard his plane inexplicably started malfunctioning; he couldn’t receive nor send any radio transmissions and the compass had a hard time pointing north. He chalked it off to some disturbances in the local magnetic fields and, for another 30-something years, the issue would remain in obscurity.

Careful measurements showed that within the Mapimi basin there is an unspecified, fluctuating area through which radio signals cannot travel. The zone acts like an absorbent barrier for television, radio, short wave, microwave and satellite signals. Despite increasing the intensity of the transmission, these waves simply couldn’t make it through.

Strange lights, floating orbs, burning bushes, flying saucers, and alien encounters have all been reported with a degree of abundance in the area. Locals report mysterious lights filling up the night sky and floating aircraft landing in the desert and causing small, localized fires wherever they touch the ground.

Some theorists proposed the continued existence of a portal in the area. Mexican ranchers tell tales of mysterious lights hovering over the Silent Zone and strangers appearing out of thin air. Multiple witnesses report encountering the same three blonde humans that always asked for water, but never for food. When asked where they were from, the strangers invariably responded that they “came from above.”

So, where exactly did the Coca Cola truck accident happen, you ask?

I’ve already emailed the newspaper asking for more photos. If they answer back, you’ll be the first to know.
