Police car drives up a pole!

A police officer in the US city Miami went from being on patrol to being up a pole - when he accidentally drove his car up a wire connected to a telephone mast.

He'd been leaning over to grab a pen when the accident happened.

The policeman managed to climb out unhurt with the help of firefighters and even managed to have a laugh about it, as did many of his colleagues.

The spectacle got local residents out talking and taking pictures.

One woman even pulled up a chair and watched the entire rescue from her lawn, saying it was better than any movie!
