(WVUE) - Dramatic video posted to a Massachusetts police department Facebook page shows a truck carrying 12,000 gallons of fuel plow into a power pole.

The video posted by the Bourne Police Department shows the driver of the truck  swerve and hit the pole.

The pole sparks but doesn't catch on fire.

The driver told police a bird flew into his window and hit his head, causing him to swerve, but the video proved otherwise, according to the post.

The driver was cited for failure to stay within marked lanes and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.
