Video: Lamp post saves woman from being hit by car

The car hit the lamp post as the woman in the video can be seen ducking for cover 

Of all the things to dive to your rescue when a car is hurtling towards you, we doubt a lamp post would be top of your list.

Okay fine: a lamp post can’t exactly dive in front of a speeding car, but it still managed to miraculously save this pedestrian from being hit.


CCTV captures the incredible moment of the accident, with one of the vehicles losing control and crashing into the street light in the Polish city of Kalisz.

Luckily, no one was seriously injured in the smash. All thanks to a humble lamp post. Who saw that coming?
