We live in an age where more and more cars are equipped with dash cams. Heck, they're pretty much mandatory in Russia. Makes sense too, when you think about it: what better way to determine who's at fault in a fender bender? Or say the dude in front of you succumbs to a nasty bout of road rage and starts denting the crap out of your hood with his 9 iron? Simply shoot that dash cam footage to the authorities and let karma take its course.

Cooler still, sometimes dash cams capture the unexpected. Prime example? The video below of ol' Mother Nature frying some random vehicle six ways to Saturday with a bolt of lightning. Not so great for the person in the car (although we're sure they're fine or whatever), but all kinds of awesome for us, the gawking YouTube generation. Enjoy!
