Posted Friday, August 15th 2014 @ 5pm

Lightning from this afternoon's wicked thunderstorms sent a letter carrier to the hospital.

The woman was inside her delivery truck at 17th and East Commercial Boulevard when lightning struck extremely close and sent a charge of electricity through the vehicle. 

She suffered some burns. 

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue paramedics assessed her on scene and she was transported to Broward Health with serious injuries. 

No other people were injured.
