Police say no one was injured after a dangling traffic light crashed down onto a car near Dundas West Station after high winds on Sunday evening.

The incident was captured on a video posted to the parkdalelife Instagram account Monday morning, credited to a contributor with the handle @insta_grahamr.

The footage, taken from the southwest corner of the intersection of Bloor Street and Dundas Street West, shows the traffic signal on the northeast side swaying in the wind before falling on the roof of a stopped car and landing on the crosswalk.
