A horrifying crash in New Jersey, a drunk driver runs a red light and slams into oncoming traffic, then a lamp post, then its roof.

The moments of impact was caught by security cameras set up to film red running drivers.

Incredibly there were no reported injuries in the accident and the driver responsible was arrested.

The footage was released by officials in Roselle Park, New Jersey to encourage safer driving.


Words from a higher level: slam (to hit with a lot of power), oncoming (coming to you), footage (film).
