Three people are injured after a driver failed to stop for police and fled in a reportedly stolen vehicle in Christchurch early today.

A police spokesperson said no pursuit was initiated and the vehicle was monitored by police in the area with traffic cameras.

It's understood the driver hit another car and a power pole near the intersection of Bealey Ave and Manchester St about 1.15am.

One person was moderately injured while two others sustained minor injuries.

The road was cordoned for a time while officers examined the scene, and the investigation into the crash is ongoing.
