Man Narrowly Escapes Lightning Bolt

A British man narrowly escaped death when a lightning bolt hit a tree, sending shards of wood into his car.

Bernard Williams from Pudsey, West Yorkshire, had just left his vehicle to run into his house during a thunderstorm when the 10ft-long piece of wood came hurtling up his driveway.

It smashed the car’s back window – where Williams had been standing just seconds before – and ended up in an alley next to his house after taking a tail light with it.
