Russian Trolley Bus Pulls Down Power Lines

The trolley bus is a very good way of transporting lots of people in crowded cities, without emitting any sort of noxious gases whatsoever. They are widespread across the world, and are generally very safe.
However, trolly bus-specific incidents can take place, such as the one in the video above. It seems that one of the poles which connect to the power lines above got snagged, and the trolley bus pulled the power line and the first pole with it.

The pole falls to the ground, or rather bends and stops just before hitting the ground, panicking the other drivers who stop at first, then make a quick getaway.

This is the first time we`ve seen an incident of this sort, and we must admit it is highly-spectacular and quite unique. Nobody seems to have been hurt and no cars were damaged, despite the fact that it could have very easily taken a turn for the worst, and more of the poles could have bent/fallen onto the many cars which were on the road at the time.
