A brick fence in Mosgiel was destroyed and a parked car badly damaged when a car crashed into them overnight.

A person who saw the aftermath of the crash said residents in High St were woken by "a loud acceleration of a vehicle before an abrupt collision into a parked car".

It appeared a car driven at speed had hit the parked car and the fence before crashing into a power pole, near the intersection with Factory Rd.

A police spokeswoman said they were alerted to the crash at 12.30am.

She said there weren't any injuries, and the council had sent a a clean-up crew. 

There was no word on any charges resulting from the incident.
