VIDEO: Storm chaser struck by lightning in S. Dakota

A storm chaser was struck by lightning on Tuesday while filming a storm in South Dakota.

Scott Sheppard and a friend were chasing a thunderstorm when heavy hail prompted him and a friend to pull over their vehicle.

Sheppard then stuck his left arm out of the driver’s side window to record the storm with his iPhone.

“The strike hit his arm and then traveled down to the ground and blew a hole in the pavement,” SevereStudios wrote in the YouTube description. “The lightning also disabled his vehicle and a passing car, both of which had to be towed. Scott has a sore arm but is otherwise OK.”
