Lightning strikes Utah family on the road

Taylor Morlock and his family were driving through a storm when the young man said he wished they would be hit by lightning. He got his wish when the family SUV was struck, knocking out its electrical system and blowing three tires. The family was unhurt, but Taylor said it’s the last time he’ll make such a wish.

>> be careful what you wish for. one utah family learned that the hard way. they were driving down the highway during an intense storm where one kid said he hoped they would get struck by lightning. moments later, here's what happened. take a look.

>> holy crap.

>> yes, well, the family says lightning hit their suv's antenna knocking out the electrical system and blowing out three tires. he said he could feel the hair on the back of his neck stand up and said that is the last time he will wish for something like that. say that again.
