The incident happened in Portland, Oregon, and the huge heavy goods vehicle was seen skiddling along the road after the driver lost control.

But eagle-eyed viewers spotted what looks like a meteor flashing through the air seconds before it happened.

Sparks went flying as the massive truck scraped along the freeway - but that was not what drew attention once it was posted online.

Twitter users were quick to point out the 'UFO'.
