Close to 1000 people in Fordlands are without power after a car crashed into a power pole.

A police media spokeswoman said the crash happened on Ford Rd around 11.40am and there were no injuries.

However, an ambulance was called as it appeared the driver was taking a child to the hospital, she said.
