An unmarked police vehicle, with lights and sirens activated, hit a utility pole after swerving to avoid a private car Thursday morning.

The police car was travelling westbound at around 9:30am on Bodden Road in George Town, when it manoeuvred to avoid a collision with a private vehicle and, as a result, struck the pole.

No one was injured in the collision.

The road was temporarily closed on Thursday as an investigation was carried out
