Power pole brought down in Maʻufanga car crash

Some residents in part of Maʻufanga woke up on Sunday morning without power after a car smashed into a power pole causing the Power company to replace it shortly.

According to Tonga’s Radio Waves of the Pacific the crash occurred just in front of the Tonga Houʻeiki Church.

Police arrived at the scene shortly but they could not be reached for comments.

Mapa Haʻangana of the Radio said an arrest was made.

The crash came after two incidents occurred on Saturday in which a van overturned in Nualei after crashing with a car shortly after two cars collided at an intersection in Nukuʻalofa.
