Car incinerated by lightening bolt during high speed chase (VIDEO)


A high speed chase which took place in Russia earlier this month ended when the vehicle leading the pursuit exploded when it was struck by lightening. The occupants in the car, who were wanted for allegedly robbing a church in St. Petersburg, all died in the inferno. The car also struck another vehicle as it crashed after being hot by the lightening bolt, but it’s unclear if anyone in that car was injured. The chances of dying from a lightening strike are around one in 300,000.
