This is the moment a woman driver crashes into a lamppost as she parks causing it fall over before getting out, checking her vehicle and walking away as if nothing happened.
The incident was caught by a CCTV camera in Bulgaria’s second-largest city Plovdiv, in the southern province of the same name, as the female driver, who has not been named in reports, was parking on a cobbled street.
In the video, she can be seen slowly driving towards the lamppost when she reportedly mixes up the accelerator with the brake and the car shoots forward into the post.

The post cracks and the top falls into a nearby fence while the driver reverses back a few feet and gets out of the car, checking her bumper for damage.
The woman then goes back to her car, pushes the wing mirror in and calmly walks away.
Local media report residents in the area thought the lamppost had corroded and fallen, with one unnamed resident telling reporters: “Luckily the post did not fall on people from the city or tourists who regularly pass through this street in the Old town.”
Netizen ‘Bella Ragazza’ commented: “So stupid. Terrible!”
While ‘Ivelina Nencheva’ added: “A sheep, which stupid person gave her a car to drive?”
The incident was reported to the authorities but it is not clear whether an investigation has been opened.
