Watch a Lightning Bolt Strike a Car

By Casey Chan on at

Boom. I remember hearing that being inside a car when it gets struck by lightning is a pretty safe place to be (as long as you don’t touch anything). Something about the bolt dissipating into the ground (the rubber tyres thing is a myth).I’m not so sure about that now because the force of nature striking down on this SUV is blinding and totally frightening. It just smacks the hell out of the car.

Even if it’s still safe, I think it’s safer still to just not go outside. Ever.
