Three people were hospitalised after a car slammed into a power pole and a fence in Waggrakine last night.

It is understood the crash happened on Chapman Valley Road about 11.45pm.

Police this morning posted a picture of the carnage on Facebook, which shows the collision had enough force to snap the power pole in two and leave the car upturned.

The nature of injuries is unclear at this point, though police said those involved were “lucky their injuries were not more serious”.

More to come.
