Amazing Video: Lightning Strikes a Moving Truck

(Video Link)

A security camera in Strathcona County, Alberta, Canada captured an incredible moment. Al and Betty Perry were driving on a highway when a bolt of lightning struck their Chevrolet pickup truck. Both of them emerged shaken but physically unharmed.

After the bolt of lightning hit the truck, it immediately caught on fire and filled with smoke. The lightning destroyed the car's electrical system, so the automatic locks and windows wouldn't open.

Thankfully, a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer who was a few hundred meters away witnessed the scene and rushed in. Constable Brian Jamot pulled the Perrys from their truck, which was partially melted. The Perrys credit Constable Jamot with saving them from certain death.

This is where I live, and I didn't see this on the news or read about it in the newspaper!
Thanks for all the neat Canadian items, John!
