A CAR smashed into power cable pole snapping it in half on a major Hampshire road today.

The one vehicle accident involved a Peugeot 206 on the A36 outside the Red Rover pub just before 3am.

No-one is thought to have been hurt in the crash and the road has now reopened after a southbound lane closure.

A team from Scottish and Sourthern Electric are currently on the scene repairing the damage.

Temporary traffic lights are also in place at the site.

It is not yet known if anyone was hurt in the incident.
