Dashcam Video: Lightning Strikes a Street Light

You don’t see this often: A dashcam video captured a street light being destroyed by a lightning bolt in Australia yesterday.

An Australian driver’s dashboard camera captured the moment a bolt of lightning struck a streetlight a short distance in front of him.

The video, recorded Thursday on a road in Marsden Park, New South Wales, shows traffic moving slowly in stormy weather when a bolt of lightning strikes a nearby street lamp.

The lightning causes the lamp’s bulb to explode, raining debris down on the road below.

The footage was captured amid widespread lightning storms in New South Wales.


Here’s the video
