Uckfield firefighters were called after a car collided with a telegraph pole in New Road on Wednesday evening.
They were called at about 6pm and made the scene safe. Utilities were informed.
The person who took this picture said they heard a very loud bang but it was a while before they realised what had happened. They added the incident could have been more serious if it was a large lorry instead of a car because the play area is just behind the fence.
Police said there “was no requirement for police attendance” and they did not have any information about whether there were injuries.
