It happened not far from New York, very early in the morning of 30.12.2010. 

My father was driving, and my mother and I were sleeping, because it was already so late. My father stopped and woke us up. He was royally nervous. We didn't know what had happened. 

He pointed at the overpass, and all you could see were those bright glowing bright red eyes. At the moment, we didn't know what it was, so we just start moving again. When we reached the overpass, the thing was still on it, so my father decided to stop. Then the creature jumped down and landed on the hood of our car. 

This thing landed with such force that it dented the hood! Then he stood on the hood, and he was 6-8 feet (1.8-2.4 m) tall, black and had wings! We were all terrified of this moment. 

My dad takes out his phone and calls the New York Highway Patrol, they laugh at him and hang up, saying that they don't like practical jokes. The creature was just sitting there. I took out my camera and took a picture of it (with a flash). 

Then this thing jumped off the car and took off, as if it was afraid of the camera flash! When we got to my aunt, we told her and she said they have countless reports about it. 

Then I showed her the photo on the camera, and she was REALLY scared. I've been doing research for the last couple of weeks and trying to find something similar. At the moment, I believe it was a Moth-Man.

Summary:  This occurred near NYC, very early on the morning of 12/30/2010. My dad was driving and my mom and I were asleep because it was so late. My dad pulled over and woke us up. He was royally flipping out. We didn’t know what was wrong. He pointed to the overpass and all you could see were these intense glowing bright red eyes. At this point, we didn’t know what it was so we just start driving again. When we reach the overpass the thing was still on it so my dad decided to stop. Then the thing swooped down and landed on the hood of our car. This thing landed with such a force it dented the hood! It then proceeded to stand up on the hood and it was 6-8 feet tall, black, and had wings! We were all terrified at this point. My dad takes out the phone and calls the New York highway patrol and they laugh at him and hang up saying they didn’t like prank calls. The thing was just sitting there. I took out my camera and photographed it (with the flash on). The thing then jumped off the car and took off, like it was afraid of the camera flash! When we got to my aunt’s we told her and she said their were countless reports of this thing. Then I showed her the picture on my camera and she got REALLY freaked out. I have been doing research over the past couple of weeks and trying to find something that resembles it. At this point, I believe it was a Mothman.
