Video captures storm chaser getting hit by lightning

Storm chaser Scott Sheppard got hit by lightning yesterday: A bolt struck his arm, passing thru his body into the ground and blowing a hole in the road. His car—and another one that was passing by—were disabled by the shock, but he walked away sore but uninjured.

In the video you can see the flash of light, the camera falling down, and then some sparks and a column of dust rising from the hole in the ground, after impact.
