Lightning strikes minivan
« on: 18 October 2006, 01:45:52 PM »
Hi all,

I saw this awesome little clip on a technology forum that I frequent, and thought it was pretty cool.  The radio antenna on a minivan is hit by a direct lightning bolt as it is driven down the highway during a storm.

That was one big zap! The person who was videoing must have thought that it was their lucky day.  ;D
