Hastings police are worried for the wellbeing of the driver of a stolen car, and any passengers, after the vehicle crashed into a power pole with enough force to snap it off around 4am.

Police said they were concerned the offender or offenders may have serious injuries from the crash, in Karamu Rd, and could be in need of medical assistance.

They also believe an incident about two hours later maybe linked to the crash.

In that incident a car was stolen from nearby Ruahapia Rd and then found again in the same road a short time later.

Police appealed for information from anyone in the Karamu Rd North or Ruahapia Rd area who had seen any suspicious activity.
