A car crash produces sci-fi fireballs to shoot across a power line


A minivan crashed into a power pole in Ontario, Canada, which caused the pole to tilt over as if it were the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

To make matters worse, the power line attached to the pole started shooting balls of fire down the line. It is terrifying to watch, and it looks like something from a Sci-Fi movie.

The police on site couldn't do anything about it, so they just walked around and enjoyed the spectacle. The power company eventually had to cut the line down.

Hopefully the driver of the minivan made it out safely and hopefully no one was injured.

The light display was probably better than any Fourth of July fireworks, though.
