A bolt of lightning hit a truck in Southwest Florida, disabling the vehicle, and the whole thing was caught on camera.
Jack Foraker was on his way home to Estero when he drove into the storm. ”I saw a few people that were just stragglers leaving the beach. And I said to myself, those are the type of people who get hit by lightning because they’re just leaving too late, and continued going. Turns out, they weren’t the people that got hit by lightning, I was,” Foraker said.
The single strike was enough to stop his brand new truck from working. “My windshield wiper stopped, lost my power brakes, lost my power steering.”
The video shows pieces of the truck flying off after the lightning strike. “Pretty much put my truck in intensive care.”
