Car hit lampost

Just after school pickup today a car handbrake failed and the car rolled across Norwich Road. It hit the lampost with a cartoon like B-O-I-N-G. I could see the lampost twanging from across the road. The owner got into the car, reversed it off the lampost and drove off. Although there appears to be no damage to the lampost I am worried in case it is structurally unsafe. Can it be checked please?
