Lightning strikes truck during massive storm

This incredible footage shows the moment a bolt of lightning strikes a truck travelling during a storm.

Traffic appears to have slowed right down due to the weather, as heavy rain obscures the driver's vision whilst the video is captured.As the lightning hits, it sends sparks along the floor and luckily doesn't do damage to any of the other cars on the road. The car behind the truck brakes sharply after the lightning strikes and is able to avoid colliding with the back of the truck after it begins to slow down.

Captured on dash camera footage, it shows how the truck has to slow down after being struck, probably from the electrics being shorted out by the lightning strike. As the camera car comes up alongside the truck, we see that it has no lights on despite the poor visibility, which again is probably after being shorted out from the lightning.
