The driver is fine, but the Prius is toast.

If Back to the Future taught us anything, it was the incredible energy carried by a lightning bolt. However, when lightning hits a car in the real world, you don't time travel from 1955 to 1985. Instead, the immense amount of electricity fries your vehicle's electronics. For an example, watch this video.

The Youtuber who operates the channel More Pi chases tornadoes and covers extreme weather. During a recent outing, he was in the right place at the right time (or wrong place at the wrong time, depending on your perspective) for a buddy to capture a lightning bolt striking his Toyota Prius.
