A four-wheel drive came to rest on its passenger side after colliding with a power pole.

The driver of a Toyota four-wheel drive was trapped for a short time after his vehicle left Walshs Bridge Rd and struck a large concrete power pole.

The crash occurred at about 1pm on Saturday.

The vehicle struck the pole on the driver’s side and came to rest on the passenger side.

A Numurkah State Emergency Service crew responded to the initial reports of a person trapped in the wreckage, but the lone occupant of the vehicle had managed to escape through the windscreen by the time it arrived.

An Ambulance Victoria spokesperson said the male driver was transported to Goulburn Valley Base Hospital in Shepparton in a stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.
