A female driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries after crashing into a power pole along Highway 2 on Sunday afternoon.

RCMP, the fire department and emergency health services heard about a crash and wires down across the road around 12:30 p.m.

The wires ended up being guy-wires that supported the utility pole. Police said they weren’t a threat to the public.

Police closed Highway 2's north-bound lane at the intersection of Highway 214 to investigate. It reopened around 1:50 p.m.

Nova Scotia Power is repairing the pole.
