ROSELLE PARK, NJ (WTVR) – Talk about shock value. A New Jersey town released video of a recent crash in hopes that the clip will help convince drivers to obey the rules of the road.

The clip, recorded by a traffic-light camera last month, shows a car getting t-boned after the driver ran a red light. The impact flipped the car in the air and took out a traffic light pole.

Neither driver was seriously hurt. The driver of the car that ran the red light was cited for DWI, according to nbcnewyork.com.
