Sometimes lightning will kill a tree outright, but not always. If you put something (pruning spray, some other remedy) on the damaged part to help protect from bugs and drying out, it may have a chance. Good luck.
We had a tall pine that finally was in the way of the house that had been struck fifteen or twenty years ago. It had a terrible scar down one side, sortof spiraling. Other than never healing up all the way, it kept on.
