Caught On Tape: Lightning Strikes Car While In Traffic

Russia seems to offer no shortage of incredible footage from the road. From a truck driver dismounting out of his front windshield to a near brutal collision on a tree-lined highway, we thought we were close to seeing it all.

But now we have this wild video of a Toyota Land Cruiser being struck by lightning while driving through a storm. We're not sure what the driver was thinking -- or if they even knew what happened -- but the footage is nothing less than amazing, especially in slow motion.

Check out the video for yourself above.

      Everyone in the car was killed right? I mean it continued to roll but eventually drifted into the middle lane and hit a school bus, right? Then cars plowed into it from behind? Tell me this is true.

      Will not watch because of the ad. Tired of all the ads before videos. Boycott all the companies that post ads.

      Anyone who assigns a number to the odds of lightening striking a car yet omits the length of time involved in their equation is pretty far from an "expert".

      Is there any way to stop these stupid huffanpuff ads? Most of the time if it says, will play after the ad I just think it's not worth waiting for and click it off.

        Really jpflrf! AND THERE'S NO WAY TO TURN THE DAMNABLE THINGS OFF OR SPEED THEM UP! TALK ABOUT "CAPTIVE AUDIENCES"! And those that have a "Close" button - by the time it takes to see the microscopic thing - they move it all over on ya! If nothing else I PURPOSELY WON'T look at their products until the last resort! Gotta have superior hand/eye coordination and even by then the ad is over with! Baistads!
