Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near San Justo, Argentina, on February 14, 1978, at night, Jorge Daniel Lamazon and Mario Martinez were driving south of the city on Route 11 when they noticed a bright white light approaching their vehicle, about 500 meters away. It was suddenly lost from sight. Their vehicle suddenly stalled and at the same time a very large man-like figure wearing a dark outfit approached to within three meters from the car. The being stared intently at the witnesses, then walked away disappearing into the darkness.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Fabio Picasso."

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 14 February 1978 at 21:00, in San Justo, Argentina, Jorge Daniel Lamazon and Mario Martinez were driving south of the city on Route 11 when they noticed a bright white light approaching their vehicle, about 500 meters away. It was suddenly lost from sight. Their vehicle suddenly stalled and at the same time a very large man-like figure wearing a dark outfit approached to within three meters from the car. The being stared intently at the witnesses, then walked away disappearing into the darkness.

The source is a link to a missing web page.

[Ref. ud2:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on February 13, 1978, at night, in "San Justo Natl Hwy11, Argentina", a "strong white light approached vehicle, car stopped immediately. Tall being dressed in black approached, stopped 3m away, turned around, walked back into light. No traces or footprints."

The web site adds that "An object was observed. Electromagnetic effects were noted. One white light was observed by two male witnesses on a highway (Lamazon). One 6-foot-tall tall being, wearing black clothing, was seen."

The sources are indicated as Webb, David, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports; Farish, Lucius, UFO Newsclipping Service, UFO Newspaper Clipping Service, Plumerville.

Points to consider:

The case cannot be evaluated due to lack of data. Descriptions are insufficient, the figure could have been a man, the UFO, said to be a light 500 meters away, could have been nearly anything. No indication gives any reason to think that there was the least investigation or checking, and the source of the short story is unknown.
