Horror as car struck by lightning

Updated: 


Video footage has captured the dramatic moment a car is struck by lightning as it travels down a busy urban street in Morocco.

The instant the lightning strikes, the car appears to speed up, while smoke can be seen billowing from the windows.

Luckily, the driver manages to get the car under control and is able to stop in the middle of the road, before getting out and walking away from the vehicle.

The video then shows a large group of people crowding around the car, no doubt coming to the assistance of the driver.

While the video was uploaded to YouTube on Sunday, it is unclear when the terrifying incident took place and whether or not anyone was injured.
