Police and emergency services were called to the roundabout at the intersection of Mercer Road and Lower King Road about 8.15pm after a white vehicle crashed into a pole in the middle of a median strip.
A 47-year-old man with a NSW driver’s licence was removed from the car by police after initial assessment by St John Ambulance paramedics.
He was then taken to Albany Health Campus for observation but suffered no serious injuries in the heavy collision.
The power pole was left leaning over towards the roundabout after the impact of the crash.
Firefighters also attended and traffic around the collision was diverted while Western Power turned off electricity in the area for the safe removal of the hatchback by tow truck.
Albany police said the driver recorded negative readings for both alcohol and drugs after the crash
