WATCH: Dramatic video of lightning striking a tree only 20 yards away from a busy road

This amazing clip is from america. Joseph Barton Comstack was travelling along a highway yesterday during a huge Thunderstorm, when a huge bolt of lightning blew up a tree only yards away from a busy highway.

Joseph’s Facebook page read: ‘While driving home on I-40 from a mediocre chase I had a close call with a bolt of lightning that hit a tree next to me.

‘Thankfully it happened just ahead of me and I had left my dash cam rolling, for as you can see I was able to capture the moment on video’.

If it was me.. I think I would have broken a few speed laws to get home quicker..

This reminds us of some scary lightning footage we filmed over Wirral last year:
