Crazy moment lightning bolt strikes parked truck, sending sparks flying across car park

Dramatic CCTV footage captures the moment lightning struck a parked truck in North Carolina, sending sparks flying across a car park.

This clip from JR Motorsports in Mooresville shows the bolt hitting the vehicle.

Sparks flew in a 10-foot radius of the truck, followed by a plume of smoke, and the headlights were turned on.

“This was something that no one has ever seen or experienced before in this manner,” spokesperson Mike Campbell said.

“It was a pretty surreal experience, with the lightning strike actually illuminating the shop floor.”
