A viral video has captured the terrifying moment between a fuel truck and a telephone pole.
The large truck, carrying 12,000 gallons of unleaded fuel, was captured in Bourne, Massachusetts.
It was driving on a two-lane road when it suddenly pulled into the outside lane.
Without warning, it swerves off the road, slamming straight into a telephone pole, knocking it down.
It splinters in half, causing a huge spark to erupt above it.

The truck then pulls over onto the side of the road to stop.
Amazingly, no-one was injured despite the other cars and built up area.
According to 23 News, the 63-year-old driver blamed a bird flying into the cab and hitting him on the head.
This is what caused him to drive erratically and out of control.
The video has already had over 124,000 views on Imgur with many shocked at the accident.

One user wrote: “Bird my a**, dude fell asleep.”
Others were surprised at the telephone pole reaction.
Another remarked: “An arcing power line touched a truck full of oil and it did not erupt into an enormous fireball? HOLLYWOOD HAS LIED TO ME.”
Others notice something else entirely.
They wrote: “‘This looks like a good time to turn right.’ – The box truck in front.”

A driver faced instant karma after being caught with some bad driving of his own.
Filmed on a dashboard camera, a car can be seen deliberately blocking another vehicle on the road.
The car filming is unable to overtake the slow driver ahead.
They pretend to pull off the road at the junction, with the car in front also doing it.
Hilariously, the pretend manoeuvre works and the car continues with his journey without the other driver.
