Lightning strikes couple's vehicle

Posted: Updated:

Lightning can strike anywhere, but it's not every day it's caught on camera.

A couple was driving along a highway in Alberta, Canada when their pickup was struck by lightning. The couple says it sounded like a sonic boom.

The blast triggered the airbags in the car and fried the rest of the electrical equipment, trapping them inside a smoke filled cab.

A royal mounted police officer driving by at the right time stopped and was able to get them out.

Amazingly, neither of them was seriously hurt.
