Exclamation Battery Change, No Power!

Hey guys. i was changing out a bad battery in my truck tonight and went to crank it and it started to turn over then all of my lights went out and I had no power whatsoever. Come to find out the hot lead going from the passenger side battery to the drivers side was lose. My stepbrother said he saw a spark back on the ground side of the passenegers side battery when this happened. I now have no power whatsoever and need an idea of where to look. Thanks.

So you now don't have any power? No lights etc etc? Are all your leads tight, including your grounds? Did you check fuses and relays? What is the voltage of the batteries now? Sure they are hooked up correctly, not trying to be smart ***, I've thrown a battery in backwards before almost hooked it up before I noticed.
