The moment that lightning struck a Highway Department truck was captured by security cameras in Greene County, Missouri, last week.

“The bolt struck the roof of the semi and cracked its front and rear windshield and did some moderate damage to the interior. Crews are still examining the truck‚Äôs electrical and mechanical systems. After the lightning struck the ground, it blew off several manhole covers and damaged more equipment,” officials said.
