Car hits pole


Weston: A motorist received minor injuries after a crashing into a power pole in Weston on Thursday.

An Oamaru police spokeswoma­n said a 33yearold woman became annoyed with a car travelling slowly in front of her in Weston Rd, and attempted to pass it at the Saleyard Rd intersecti­on.

The car hit loose gravel, collided with the car it was passing, and went into a power pole outside North Otago Truck Repairs.

As a result, powerlines were down over several trucks and a petrol tanker, parked in the truck repair yard.

The car and power pole were both written off.
