He hit the pole on the DRIVERS DOOR while he was turning. No sensors on the drivers door. Cross traffic depends on motion...a poie doesn't move. I'm sure he saw it as he started to back up...he just thought he was clear.
I personally find the backup sensors in the Jeep pretty useless. They go off way too early, so its really easy to just tune them out as background noise, and the way the beeps work make it hard to tell just from the sound how close you are to something. I find the backup camera way more useful. If I wasn't used to the Lexus' sensor system I might think differently, but that system is much better.
