ENERGEX crews are working to restore power to part of the Ipswich CBD after a four-wheel drive knocked down a power pole.

The 4WD collided with the pole on the right hand side of Limestone St, just past the Milford St intersection, about 1.30pm.

The top of the pole fell on to Limestone St, with power lines draped across the road.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said the woman driver of the 4WD and one of the two passengers were taken to Ipswich Hospital with minor injuries.

The cause of the crash is being investigated.
