GAUTIER, Miss. – A police officer in Mississippi was driving in stormy weather when lightning struck the bridge right front of him and it was captured on a dash camera.

According to WLOX, the lightning strike was captured on the dash cam of Sgt. Mark Rodriguez’s patrol car on Tuesday morning. The footage is quite impressive and it’s rare to catch lightning at such a close range.

Rodriguez said he later went back to the spot where the lightning struck and he found a chunk of singed concrete.

No one was reported injured in the lightning strike.
