Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that between Agia Marva and Lefkohori, Greece, on August 6, 1978, at night, Antonis Coulouris was driving his car on country road when he suddenly saw several "giant humanoids" caught by the lights of his truck. Terrified, he put the car in reverse to get away and drove about 60 meters when the engine stopped functioning. The lights went out and he felt like something was "shaking" his truck. For 15 seconds he tried to turn on the engine but to no avail. After that, the shaking stopped and the engine functioned normally.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Makis Nodaros."

[Ref. tv1:] THANASSIS VEMBOS:

Site: Country road between Agia Mavra and Lefkohori villages, Helis County, Peloponnese.

Date: 6 August 1978.

Time: night.

Witness: Antonis Coulouris.

The witness was driving when he suddenly saw "giant humanoids" caught by the lights of his truck. Terrified, he put the reverse gear to get away and went this way for about 60 m when the engine stopped functioning. The lights went out and he felt like something was "shaking" the truck. For 15 seconds he was trying to turn on the engine but with no avail. After that the shaking stopped and the engine functioned on normally.

Source: Makis Nodaros, investigator based in Lechena, Helis.

Points to consider:

This is a case without UFO which could be indeed really strange, but the data is insufficient and I do not know at all which credibility can be granted to the story.
