A fire service spokesperson told the Waikato Times that driver Christine Carter was travelling north on the road when she crashed into the sign.

“Well I look at that and I’m amazed how lucky I am,” she said.

Carter was treated for minor injuries at the scene, the Waikato Times reported.

The NZ Herald reported the crash as a “miracle escape.”
