A Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesman said they received a call about 9.30am concerning a crash at the intersection of Prince Albert Rd and Douglas St, in St Kilda.
Crews from St Kilda and Lookout Point attended the two-car crash; one of the cars had subsequently hit a power pole.
The driver of the other car had absconded.
A police spokeswoman said they located the second car about 10.35am, but the driver did not pull over when signalled to do so.
She was followed by police at low speed before eventually being pulled over in Isadore Rd.
A 32-year-old woman is scheduled to appear in Dunedin District Court on October 5, charged with careless driving and failing to stop for police.
A St John spokesman said an ambulance attended the crash and one patient was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
