(TAMPA, Fla.) — Eleven people were hurt Sunday afternoon by a lightning strike in the parking lot of Raymond James Stadium in Tampa at the conclusion of an NFL game between the Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers.

Authorities say it wasn’t a direct hit but was close enough to people leaving the stadium to knock several down.

A spokesman for Tampa Fire-Rescue said four of the injured drove themselves to the hospital while the other seven were transported by ambulance.

The injured ranged in age from 20 to 70.

Green Bay won the game.
