It was a moving violation of a very different kind when a rusted-out city light pole came crashing down on Jason Orr’s Jeep while he was driving through an Edmonton intersection.

Video footage captured by a dashcam mounted in a vehicle travelling in the opposite lane shows the light pole as it comes crashing down on Orr’s Jeep – at the very moment his vehicle enters the intersection.

 

The video of my Jeep getting smashed by the light pole couple more inches and it would have gone in through my windshield…

Damages

Orr’s Jeep suffered a smashed windshield and damage to part of the frame. He’s calling on the city of Edmonton to cover the more than $12,000 it will cost to repair his vehicle.

In a Facebook post, Orr said the city is refusing to accept responsibility.

The incident originally occurred on October 22, 2017. He’s still fighting the city, three months later.
