Power has been cut in the Cambridge area and a driver was left trapped in his car after powerlines were brought down in a single car crash.

The incident happened at 12.45pm on Racecourse Rd leaving a large number of homes without power between Cambridge and Tamahere.

A St John spokesperson said the sole occupant of the vehicle, a man, walked away from the incident with no injuries after contractors secured power lines.

Power has been restored at many of the affected homes.

How excited are you about the 2014 Commonwealth Games?

Not really - but I'll be once NZ serve up some dramatics.

Old episodes of Friends are more exciting.
