I wish I'd had that video when I had some dolt telling me that the rubber tires protected you from electrocution if a live-line hit your vehicle... Those rubber tires were passing so much current they were on fire!
Had something like that happen in Alexandria when a WTTG news crew raised their mast into some 115kV transmission lines.
Somehow, no one was killed, but it totally destroyed the truck.
Edited because according to the link posted by Mbhydro
the voltage was 115kV, not 230kV.
