So sorry to hear about ur mom. I'm glad to hear of the spirit-type phenomena you described, I hope it continues and it brings you comfort that your mom continues to exist in a new form.
As for your friend, there are a lot of possibilities. He may have drank much more than he's willing to admit because he feels so ashamed about the experience. He may have had some type of interaction with one drink and, for example, an antianxiety medication, or maybe a sleeping pill (ambient is known for this type of thing all by itself). He may have sleepwalked and drove there. He may have been drugged (ghb or some other date rape drug would do this). He might have had some sort of brain-related episode.
Nevertheless, the coincidence is strange.
I hope all goes well for you, your family, and your friend.

Lived in that area for a number of years. When I first moved there I was told some very strange stories by long-time residents. As you know, they built the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant out on Rocky Point, just the other side of Rte 3 near Myles Standish. While it was under construction there were several reports of people seeing odd lights in the woods in the Pine Hills through which Rte 3 passes and which abut Myles Standish. In addition to lights in the woods, there were also reports of people seeing pi-pedal creatures near the road in the Pine Hills. The people I've spoken with that reportedly saw the creatures swear they truly saw them. Everyone uses the term 'aliens' when talking about it.
Missing 411- A Sobering Coincidence is the fifth book in the acclaimed series about people who have mysteriously disappeared. The books have been vetted by some of the top journalists in the world with statements such as; “David Paulides has shined a light onto one of the greatest and most disturbing mysteries of our time.” ...
The author continues with his profile points involving the disappearances and applies them to a series of incidents involving young men and women, mostly college age. Many of the victims vanished within the confines of their college or university town. These individuals were brilliant scholars, athletes and stellar people in their community. They disappear under unusual circumstances and are often found in areas that were previously searched. Medical examiners in these cases often cannot determine the cause of death. Many times the victim was recovered in water, yet autopsies show the body was not in the water the entire time the victim was missing. The majority of the families in these cases believe their loved ones were abducted and held, then later dumped in the water. These allegations are generally ignored by authorities until pressured by facts presented through secondary autopsies that families requested and paid for. This is a chilling and shocking series of stories that will cause many parents and young people to rethink their nighttime activities

Did he take a sleeping pill, too?
I have heard of cases where people have actually driven to work in the wee hours of the morning dressed in their pajamas, and tried to get in the door of their office building totally unaware of how they got there. After the security personnel approached them and "woke" them up, the last thing they said they remembered was going to bed.

That's actually another thing people mention a lot...the feeling of being watched before a UFO event....
As for living around Boston. I moved around quite a bit. Lived in Revere, Allston, Brighton and Jamaica Plain.
I can't think of a specific book regarding things falling from the sky. but, you might want to check out
