Strange object falls from sky in Missouri City
(08/14/06 - KTRK/MISSOURI CITY, TX) (KTRK) -- There's a bizarre mystery in Fort Bend County. A strange piece of metal fell right out of the sky, just missing a Missouri City woman.
Lynn Moore was parked at a convenience store at the intersection of US 90 and Pitts Road last Thursday when the object came crashing down.
There are two small holes in the piece of metal. Moore thinks it was once bolted to something. She says the object hit her van and a truck parked next to her.
Fort Bend County sheriff's deputies filed a report, but there's no word yet what the object might be.
You may remember back in June, a strange metal object fell out of the sky in Porter and hit the hat a man was wearing while standing in his garden. Amazingly, he wasn't hurt. The homeowner lives just a few miles away from Bush Intercontinental Airport. There were no identifying marks on the object, but aviation experts agreed it looked like something from a small airplane.
