A Storm Chaser Got Struck by Lightning While Filming a Rainbow

by Murphy

OK, this is kinda freaky, a storm chaser named Scott Sheppard was filming a rainbow from his car on Tuesday, That's the good part....the bad part? He got struck by LIGHTNING.....because his arm was hanging out the window. The lightning hit his arm, then traveled down to the ground where it blew a hole in the road. He's gonna be ok, he just has a sore arm. It also knocked his car out of commission as well as another car that was passing by. You don't actually see the lightning bolt, you just hear it. Then he drops the camera, and you see pieces of the PAVEMENT shoot up into the air, along with a big plume of smoke.
