    incident

    I saw a incident that one man became between an electric post and bus. Nothing happened. Can I say “He has been got between an Electric Post and Bus”

    Re: incident

    I would say he was caught, or stuck, between the post and the bus.

    Re: incident

    ... an incident.

    I don't like 'electric post'.
    I would probably use 'electricity pole'; perhaps other native speakers have a preference.

    Here's a selection: utility pole, electricity pole/post, power pole/post, telegraph pole/post.
