A dashboard camera happened to be recording at the right time and in the right place to capture this video of lightning striking a Toyota Land Cruiser driving along a road in Russia.

It's not known what happened to the occupants but the car appears to drive off after the strike. Which perhaps proves that the safest plance to be in a thunderstorm is in your car!

The video, though short, is quite amazing.
