Don't ask this family what the odds are, they're probably sick of hearing it.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency estimates that the chances of you getting hit by lightning are about 1 in 600,000. In a moving vehicle the chance of a bolt striking down on your ride is even more rare. Don' t tell that to this unlucky father and son because those numbers flew out the window when their SUV was struck on a highway in Southern Utah. All of the electrical gauges immediately were toast and 3 tires were blown out. Hat Tip to Bradd L.
The video doesn't show much after the strike, but in a way they are kind of lucky in that no one was injured and now they have a cool video to block all the friends that will no doubt call BS on their story when they tell it.
This video was recorded earlier this year by a Russian dash cam and demonstrates an awesome external view of an SUV getting zapped.
I guess you could say we like this stuff. For good measure, here is a third video of a truck getting hit on a US highway in 2010. Lightning touches down at the 15 second mark.
