In remission from brain cancer, Savannah Boone and her Dad Joe, were driving from Indiana to Idaho.  However, when they crossed the Wyoming border on I-80, the clouds began to darken.

"We saw a lightning strike, and I said wow Dad that was close," Savannah tells K2 News.  "Will it hit us?"

Within minutes lightning struck their car, knocking out 3 tires, shattering windows, and deploying the airbags.  The truck is likely to be a total loss, but miraculously neither of them were seriously hurt.
