Crashes keep services busy

Emergency services were kept busy in Dunedin for about an hour yesterday attending two crashes in quick succession.

The first accident happened about 2.30pm when a 4WD ran into a power pole in Cosy Dell Rd (left).

A police spokeswoman said the road was initially blocked but no-one was injured.

Delta contractors were sent to inspect the pole, the spokeswoman said.

About 45 minutes later police, an ambulance and Fire and Emergency New Zealand were called to a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Argyle and Inglis Sts, in Mosgiel (above).

One person was treated for minor injuries, while the driver of the other vehicle was not injured, the spokeswoman said.
