Shocking footage shows a pick-up truck plough into the dividing wall on a highway, uprooting two lamp posts and sending them smashing into the path of traffic.

Motorists skillfully avoided catastrophe and swerved out of the way just in time in the jaw-dropping clip.

The terrifying moment was captured by CCTV on Interstate 43 in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.

After mounting the dividing wall, the truck carries on moving with just two of its wheels on the tarmac.

Its tyres hit the lamp posts one at a time, popping them out of the ground and sending them shooting into traffic on the other side of the highway.

The first ends up falling over the dividing wall back onto the driver’s side, while the second bounces next to cars going the other way.

The truck then slams down onto four wheels again and comes to a stop, leaving a cloud of dust circling its path of destruction.

The out-of-control truck uproots the first lamp post, which shoots out of the ground and lands on the other side of the road before bouncing back over to the driver’s side

The incident caused delays for up to three miles on both sides of the highway.

Debris hit six cars after the truck ploughed into the dividing wall but no injuries were reported.

The driver reportedly failed a field sobriety test and was arrested.
