Video: Falling lamppost narrowly misses cars

Motorists in Melbourne may be thinking about buying a Lotto ticket after a street light came crashing down in Coolaroo, narrowly missing the vehicles driving close to it.

In a video captured by a driver's dashcam, a small truck briefly loses control and scrapes the lamppost, which results in it falling onto the road.

In a stroke of good fortune, the driver of a vehicle closest to the light manages to slam on their brakes and avoid impact.

Watch the video to see the moment unfold.
