Pole 1 , Truck 0 ..

pole looks to be made of stern stuff ..

Not in the top ten list this year I guess.

Best I remember was 9 poles or so by domino effect.

 

It's obviously a high power voltage pole.

No toy to play with.

It's worth to open the article with all photos.

Another parked car got his "ass burned" by a falling power line :biggrin:

Melted plastic rear bumper it seems.

Yes, looking at the photo the headlights do appear to be non-functioning.

Thailand does seem to follow the basic law of magnetism, in that 'unlike poles attract each other' - vehicles and power poles.

Metallurgically speaking , it may be vehicles and poles here have an affinity for each other. A bit like cars built in the UK in the 60's had an affinity for Oxygen and turned into rust the minute you drove them out of the showroom.
