The 20-year-old was in a car that went out of control and struck a light pole between Arthur Street and the Harbour Expressway. The impact caused the light standard to crash to the ground.

Firefighters used extrication gear to free the woman from the vehicle.

She was taken to hospital, as a precaution, to be checked over.
