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."
