Al and Betty Perry are lucky to be alive today. They were driving down the highway when a bolt of lightning struck their truck.

Al said it sounded like a sonic boom when they were hit and their truck became engulfed in flames.'We were in a coffin,' he said. The jolt destroyed the car's electrical system and as a result, the windows and doors were locked.

A Canadian police officer offered the couple assistance getting out and they walked away unharmed.
