A crash has caused traffic delays in Otumoetai.

A police northern communications spokeswoman said a car had crashed into a power pole on Carlton St about 5.10pm causing serious damage.

She said it looked like it may take some time to repair the pole and traffic delays were likely. One of the roads may have to be closed until it could be repaired.

No one was injured in the crash.


Meanwhile, a girl was hit by a car on Kesteven Ave in Merivale about 5.15pm.

A witness at the scene said the girl was not injured and walked away after the collision.
