Northbound traffic out of Hawke's Bay has been delayed after a collision involving a truck, car and a power pole.

Inspector Chris Tate said the two vehicles collided at 3.11pm on State Highway 2 near Eskdale, about 16 kilometres north of Napier.

No-one was injured but the truck knocked down a power pole, which blocked the highway causing moderate traffic delays.

"It was truck v pole and has caused some delays in traffic, being the long weekend," he said.

The pole has been removed and police were directing traffic. It was expected to be another hour before traffic was flowing freely.
