It seems a normal commute during a normal, slightly wet day in Russia.

But suddenly the ire of the heavens opens up above the highway- and a bolt of lightning slams into the roof of an SUV, leaving the driver stunned, shaken - and perhaps a little shocked.

Luckily for the driver, he appears to be left unharmed by the thousand-volt hit and in the footage, uploaded to YouTube this month, he carries on driving for a few seconds, before rolling to a stop.

A bolt of lightning split a hundred year old oak tree in half in my front yard.  Very lucky man.

That's so cool!

Once when I was young a bolt of lightning hit a tree beside our house. I didn't have a bath that night.

I had one hit right in front of my car while I was driving.  I had to pull off the road cause it blinded me for a bit.  People stopped to make sure I was ok.

When I was 10 I went on a school trip to France. We were on the way back late at night, when a bolt of lighting hit the coach. Everyone woke in terror, the coach radio came on as well as most of the lights and the driver nearly lost control of the wheel. Uber scary!

What's the point of having a video camera running on the dash board while driving in the rain? Anyway, it certainly paid off on this occasion!
