See video here

You can just barely see the OV 25 which was also dayburning slip off the arm.

Tired of orange lights? Our all new Ceram-Arc Ceramic Metal Halide lamps are the solution. They even use up to a 1/3 less energy than our Orange 40™ lamps and the competing Seagull Vapour lamps.

 Shocked wow! I've never actually seen it happen in person but usually here with the NGrid owned lights the M-250R2 will fall off the pole but the lead wires often stay attached to the terminal block and the terminal block rips out of the fixture! So all you see is a little black cube hanging a few inches from the end of the arm. Grin NGrid uses impact guns so they must really crank down on the terminal block screws. They crank down on the slipfitter pretty hard too since usually the whole reason the light falls is because the housing cracks from the shock. If the fixture is properly tightened usually the worst that happens is the door swings open and flies off lol. If it's too loose then you'll get a perfectly intact light if you've got a trampoline to catch the fixture when it falls!

I've never seen it happen in person too but enough drivers here have dashcams so stuff like this gets captured often. I think in this case, the lead wires ripped out of the terminal as I xan't really see the block attached. There's also this one where the AE 25 remained attached to the pole after the impact. The pole however broke into a few pieces.
