A CAR crash on Victoria street caused a four wheel drive to flip on to its side knocking over a traffic light pole between 6pm and 6.15pm today.
Constable Tim Gillahan of the Ballarat Police said it appeared one car went through a red light.
"One car was travelling east towards Melbourne along Victoria Street and one was travelling north along Water Street," Constable Gillahan said.
"One car was hit and it was caused to spin out and hit a traffic light and turn over."
He said there were three people involved who were all taken to hospital to be checked over but there were no serious injuries.
"Traffic continued, there was no major hold up," he said.
Police, Country Fire Authority and Ambulance Victoria all attended.
Police are still investigating.
