Caught on video: Storm chaser struck by lightning

A storm chaser in South Dakota had a very close call when he was struck by lightning – and it was all caught on tape.

According to the original YouTube post by Severe Studios, the strike hit Scott Sheppard’s arm and traveled down to the ground and blew a hole in the pavement. It also said the lightning disabled his vehicle and a passing car.

Sheppard has a sore arm but is otherwise okay, according to the post.
