An Australia Post delivery driver has accidentally destroyed his own van while attempting to reverse out of a driveway.

‘What a clown,’ commented another.
Other Facebook users were quick to defend the driver, arguing the metal pipe should not have been placed near the driveway in the first place.
‘In his defence though, why was the pipe so close to the driveway and curb for? Just asking for it to happen at some point, be it owner or someone else,’ one person said.
‘Seriously what a stupid place to put a pole! This poor man is probably ran off his feet delivering mail for you all,’ said another.
‘The driver did nothing wrong, he had an accident. The idiot property owner should be fined for putting a star picket on public land causing danger. Imagine someone impaled themsleves, lawsuit!’ a third added.
