God Is Angry: SUV Struck By Lightning While Driving

suv-lightning-strike.jpg

This is a video of a Toyota Land Cruiser that gets struck by lightning while driving down the street. Amazingly, it didn't explode like they do in my dreams. No word what the driver did to deserve the wrath of God, but my guess is tailgating. God hates tailgaters. He loves novelty bumper stickers though. You seen mine? "It says 'Jesus is my copilot'". It's true too. He's not very good with maps but he will hold the wheel steady while I eat.

Hit the jump for a video of the it's Friday, there's nothing on the internet, and all I want to do is play Borderlands.

Thanks to Shaghigh, who doesn't get struck by things when he's driving, HE strikes things. You need to stay off the f***ing sidewalk is what you need to do.

    That's what they get for being a dbag with an suv in the city.

    They so missed their chance to go back to 1965.

    I know for the most part people are safe within a vehicle thats being hit by lightning or juiced with electricity but that probably still would have made me swerve abit for sure.

  • the coolest thing about this is *it hasn't happened yet*

  • Mobin1

    Someone in that SUV said the word "Shazam!"

  • JJtoob

    I thought electrons were lazy. It would have been far more easy to strike one of those buildings in the background.

    While many might think that this would fry the people inside, this isn't the case. Electric current cannot pass through the inside of a metallic object, This SUV acted as a faraday cage protecting the people inside it.

    Glad to see that I'm not the only one with brains here, I came to the comment area to see if somebody actually realized that all cars with a metal body work like a faraday cage, however...to be on the safe side, don't touch any metal objects in the car. Also the antistatic strip on some cars are strong enough to conduct this electric discharge to the ground (by provinding the lowest point to the ground even while driving) but mainly those strips are used to ground a vehicle to make it somewhat safer while filling it up with gas. Also, Youtube search: Top Gear Faraday Cage. (This is not where my knowledge came from but it might help others)

  • peenus

    If you use your eyes, you'll it striking the railing just a foot from the SUV. While the SUV was definately in the blast zone, it was not a direct strike.

  • colin twigg

    Its the kerb stone reflecting the light from the lightning...

  • enigmaDAEDAL

    If you did actually use your eyes, you'd notice that there isn't a rail.
