Remarkable Video Of Lightning Striking A Moving Vehicle

June 2014

A surveillance video caught the remarkable sight of a lightning bolt hitting a truck as it drove on a highway in Edmonton, Canada.

The couple inside the truck, Al and Betty Perry, told Canada's CTV it sounded like a "sonic boom" when the lightning hit the truck.

A fireball enveloped the truck, melting part of the metal and burning away two craters into the road.

The Perry's were trapped inside, unable to open the doors or windows, which seemed locked, as smoke filled the inside of the cab.

"It's an awful feeling to have. I saw our lives passing in front of our eyes," Al Perry told CTV. "I turned my body and put my two feet up against the window and tried to kick the window out. I can't tell you how many times I tried and tried and tried."

Thankfully, a nearby cop saw the couple and helped rescue them from the truck.
