WATCH: Lamp post saves woman from being hit by car

A pedestrian was lucky to have walked away unscathed after an out-of-control car came hurling towards her.

In the Polish city of Kalisz, a two-car collision sent a speeding car in her direction but she was miraculously spared when a sturdy street light stopped the car in its tracks.

CCTV footage captured the moment the white hatch had its front bumper taken off by the dark sedan, leaving the red-coated woman diving for cover.

Fortunately no one was seriously injured in the crash. Source: Yahoo UK
