NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 17/04/2016

A car crash in the western Bay of Plenty has left live powerlines strewn across State Highway 2 and closed the major road in both directions.

Police say the vehicle hit a power pole in Aongatete at about 2pm on Sunday, bringing the lines down across both sides of the highway.

One person received minor injuries in the crash, a police spokesman said.

Motorists are being told to avoid the area altogether if possible with the closure expected to last several hours.
