Ken Oliver shared this video on his YouTube channel over the weekend.

This video is captioned saying, “Check out the impressive arcing as this high load takes down a couple of utility poles. Happened around 3:00 PM on Nov 17 in NW Calgary. Not a fun way to end Friday afternoon for a bunch of people no doubt.”

Some Reddit users questioned how the incident could have happened and whether the oversized load’s route was properly planned.
