An Idaho man survived his car being hit by lightning in a storm that caused his SUV to go haywire and keep running after the key removed from the ignition. Antun Tuskan, 30, of Rathdrum, Idaho, was driving to work on Tuesday when he spotted a lightning storm on the freeway he needed to take to work. "I’ve never seen a lightning storm. It was just lightning bolts coming straight down. They weren’t going diagonal or across the sky," Tuskan told ABCNews.com. "I thought, ’They’ve got to be hitting something,’ but I had to go in that direction to get to work."
