Stories (German): "Reunion": slight grammar mistake in the topic sentence

The introductory phrase of this story about a class reunion reads,

"Timo und Sophie fahren an einer regnerischen Nacht schnell die Autobahn entlang."

While it is grammatically correct to say "on a rainy night" in English, it should read in German "in einer regnerischen Nacht." In Germany we also say "am selben Tag" (i.e. "on the same day"), however, "in the same night" would be translated "in derselben Nacht".
