Two people whose ute hit a high-voltage power pole on State Highway 1B north of Hamilton on Sunday afternoon were trapped inside the vehicle for more than an hour before being freed.

Police say the crash caused live wires to fall on top of the ute but the occupants were uninjured.

A stretch of State Highway 1B at Gordonton was expected to reopen at 8.10pm.
