Paul, no one else was taking video that I know of. I believe this was the first monster truck ride of the day. I don't think the driver realized he had hit the lamp post. When the truck was headed back, one of the passengers was yelling to the passersby, "Tell the driver to stop! He cant hear us!" She repeated this over and over. The problem was, by the time she yelled out, the truck was already too far ahead for anyone to tell him. He eventually stopped back at his starting point. I don't imagine there will be anymore monster truck rides. I'm so thankful no one got hurt.
