Dunkirk resident Randolph Wilkins, 48, got more than he bargained for while searching for a job en route to California. He considers himself lucky to be alive after being struck by lightning during an Oklahoma thunderstorm. According to Mr. Wilkins, he pulled his car to the side of the road after lightning struck his car's antenna, apparently traveled through his unplugged citizens band radio, jumped to his right leg and went out his left elbow. He refused treatment and continued on his journey the next day.
