Sgt. Mark Rodriguez was driving over the Tchoutacabouffa River in Gautier, Mississippi, early Tuesday when the incredible phenomenon was caught on camera. Rodriguez told WLOX-TV the lightning nearly blinded him.

Rodriguez later returned to the bridge and discovered it had been partly scorched by the lightning.
