The driver of the white Ford Transit van was out of the vehicle when emergency services arrived.
He was said to be suffering from shock and was taken to Torbay Hospital as a precaution.
Traffic soon built up in the area and by 7am Blagdon Road was gridlocked.
Police urged drivers not to head through Tweenway Cross.
Western Power hope to have the pylon repaired by midday.
