A Queensland Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said the blue Commodore station wagon was thought to be driven by a man in his 20s who exited the vehicle himself without major injury after the crash, which occurred about 6.30pm.

He said the car hit the stabilising wires on the pole but posed no real electrical fire threat.
