MAITLAND, Fla.-- A Central Florida man had quite a scare on the highway Monday.

Rob Viehweger was exiting Interstate 4 when his dash cam recorded a street light falling right in front of his car.

Viehweger said the whole thing surprised him.

"At first you could just see it doing this vaguely," he said as he waved his hand back and forth to mimic the pole. "But as I got closer you could see just more and more and more," he said as he continued motioning his hand.

"Wow, holy, holy, holy, this could have been really bad," he recalled.

Viehweger says he was able to get around the light pole safely. No one was injured in the incident.
