Dash cam footage has emerged online showing what is claimed to be a lightning strike blowing to pieces a car full of robbers who had just raided a local church and were being chased on a highway by Russian police.

One moment the car was involved in a high-speed chase with police, allegedly after thieves raided a church in the Russian city of St. Petersburg, and the next moment the car was blown to smithereens by what the YouTube uploader says was reported locally as a lightning strike in the midst of heavy rainfall.

The video shows the vehicle speeding along with the sound of a police siren in the audio background, suggesting that the car was being chased by police. Suddenly, the car appears to ignite spontaneously, blowing to pieces and scattering charred debris across the road.

The sudden alleged lightning strike catastrophe forced the car whose dash cam was filming to slow down and pull over. We see charred remains of the car and a wheel flying off the road as the car pulls over.

It was not possible to determine from the video how many people were in the car at the time.
