Lightning strikes hear car

Talk about a close call! A husband and wife on vacation nearly got struck by lightning.

Riho Ossep and his wife were on their first day of vacation in southern Estonia when a thunderstorm blew in. Riho asked his wife to start recording a video of the storm on her phone when suddenly a lightning bolt lit up the ground in front of their car.

The bolt came just feet away from striking the couple's vehicle causing his wife to scream. They weren't hurt, but it certainly gave them a vacation memory they won't forget.
