Cop Flees Into Cruiser As Lightning Crashes Down Onto Parking Lot

I suppose Florida news outlets can be forgiven for not spilling much ink on this video, being used to insane thunderstorms and all, but, still, holy shit!

This happened Tuesday night in Apopka, Florida, according to the Associated Press. The officer, who was loading up his SUV when the lightning struck, wasn’t hurt in the incident, nor was there much property damage beyond some destroyed electrical transformers and a haze.


Which means you are free to enjoy the video. Florida, man.
