Screams of terror as lightning bolt narrowly miss car

Dramatic footage has captured the moment a bolt of lightning struck the side of the road and narrowly missed hitting a couple as they drove through the countryside in Estonia.

Screams can be heard on the video as Riho Ossep and his wife realise how close they had come to disaster.

The video was recorded on mobile phone by Rhio's wife and was posted to YouTube on August 7th.

Ossep said: "I asked my wife to make a videoclip for our first rainy day on vacation.

"My wife asks me when recording video do I want thunderstorms left on video and then suddenly lightning struck the ground next to us."
