Powerlines are blocking the road after a car crashed into a power pole on Links Ave, Mount Maunganui.

Police were called to the scene at around 2.15pm where a car had crashed into a power pole on Links Ave between Golf Road and Ascot Rd.

A police spokesperson says no one is injuried, however the power pole and several powerlines have fallen onto the road.

"Police called Transpower and they are on their way."

"The power pole has been moved off of the road."

the power pole. It was obviously using its mobile phone when it crashed in to the car.

I hope the idiot that hit the pole is made to pay for the damages and all the time and effort of the emergency services

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
