A Florida man's dashboard camera captured the terrifying moment when a bolt of lightning struck his brand-new 2020 Ford Ranger truck.
The driver, Jack Foraker, was on his way home from work on June 26 around 2:30 in the afternoon when the incident occurred.
"I saw a few people that were just stragglers leaving the beach. And I said to myself, those are the type of people who get hit by lightning because they're just leaving too late and continued going. Turns out, they weren't the people that got hit by lightning, I was," Foraker said.
Foraker's dash cam was recording when a bolt of lightning struck his vehicle, causing it to shut down.
"Just sounded like a shotgun blast to the back of my truck. And then yeah, it was. It was pretty scary," he said. "My windshield wiper stopped, lost my power brakes, lost my power steering."
Luckily, Foraker was not injured and was able to pull over to the side of the road. However, the truck, which only had 4,000 miles on it, was badly damaged.
