Lightning detonates piece of highway through Ford’s windshield, injuring two people
Zeus is standing on Mount Olympus, launching his lightning bolts of destruction at us mere mortals. We curl up in our insulated automobiles, protected from damage by our rubber tires. “The gods can’t hurt me here,” we think, oblivious to the naivety of such a claim. The gods, my friends, want to hurt you, and they are getting creative. A lightning bolt crashed into Florida’s Freeway 10 between Pensacola and Tallahassee on Monday morning, throwing a piece of black roof in the path of a moving Ford F-series.
No one knows exactly what caused the pavement to levitate, but the theory is going on, says meteorologist Chris Vagasky. the Washington Post, is that the water had seeped into the cracks in the road and was instantly vaporized by lightning. The sudden, violent expansion of liquid turning into gas pushed the piece into the air just as two unsuspecting motorists rushed forward. head down in the song. Frozen tar and stone blew through the front windshield, appear to have struck the rear center seat, and exploded through the rear window. A real master key.
While the driver and passenger were injured and taken to hospital, neither appeared to have been hit by the projectile itself. Both people in the vehicle suffered lacerations from flying windshield panes, but had they been struck by such a heavy and dense piece of tarmac, the injuries could have been much more serious. Just watch how the back seat headrest was pushed back half a foot and you will know how much worse it could have been.
Monday’s storm front in the region was seen as a low, dropping half an inch of rain in two hours and gusts of wind up to 30 miles per hour. However, the storm was absolutely filled with electric power, as the strike that caused this incident peaked at 35,000 amps of current.
Heaven was angry that day, my friends. Maybe it’s time to sacrifice a chicken or something? What kind of food does Zeus like?
