“The strike hit his arm and then travelled down to the ground and blew a hole in the pavement,” Severe Studios said on its YouTube page. “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.”

Sheppard snapped a few photos of the aftermath.
