Truck driver does battle with Toowoomba traffic lights

WATCH THE VIDEO: A dash cam has captured the moment a truck travelling on one of Toowoomba's busiest streets collides with a set of traffic lights.

The hilarious moment happened on Saturday afternoon on the corner of James and Ruthven Sts.

The truck was turning onto Ruthven St when it couldn't quite make it around the bend.

It drove straight into the middle island traffic light three times before realising it wasn't getting through.

The light and pole can be seen wobbling with the weight of the truck behind it. 

The truck then reversed and attempted the manoeuvre again, this time just making it past the light.
