Lightning Strike Kills One, Injures Two

MIAMI (September 3, 2013)--A lightning strike killed one man and injured two others in a semi-rural area southwest of Miami.

The men were outdoors Monday afternoon when a major storm passed through the area, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials said.

Authorities say the men tried to hide underneath a tractor-trailer truck, but lightning struck the trailer.

Authorities said the energy passed through the trailer and into the men.

The two injured men were taken by ambulance to a trauma center for treatment.

Information about their conditions wasn’t immediately available.
