A car has brought down a power pylon on the Haywards Hill Rd this morning.

Police central communications Inspector Ken Climo said the car hit the pylon, bringing it down, about 8am.

No people were trapped and were out of the car, uninjured, when emergency services arrived.

The New Zealand Transport Agency has been notified that the northbound slip lane on the road is partially blocked.

The crash was cleared by 9am.

There have been no reports of power outages at Haywards Hill, Wellington Electricity spokesman Hugo Armstrong said.
