A light pole in Mindarie was ripped out of the ground after a four-wheel-drive ploughed into it late last night.

A white Toyota 4Runner travelling on Anchorage Drive ran over the median strip and crashed into the post near Rothesay Heights about 10.30pm.

The driver, allegedly a man in his 30s, was given first aid by firefighters who arrived on the scene.

He was then taken to Royal Perth Hospital by St John Ambulance.
