Boom. A couple were driving in their pickup truck on a fairly empty road when the weather gods decided that their car would be a great target for a direct lightning bolt strike. According to the couple, after getting hit the car's airbags popped out, the electrical system was destroyed, the car doors locked and black smoke started filling the car.

Thankfully, a police officer was nearby and able to get the couple out without any injuries. You can read the news report here. The couple said getting hit by a lightning bolt sounded like a sonic boom.
