What you're describing is not unusual at all. Meteors move very fast and usually only last a fraction of a second. Some of them can be very
bright, and the ones I've seen appear to travel in a straight line. I suppose it is uncommon to see two take the exact same path in a 5 second time
period, but as byrd pointed out, it's not unheard of, especially if they came from the same collection of space dust.
What you described sounds like typical meteors to me. Still, even a typical one make my heart beat a bit faster when I see it!
