The Hamilton welcome sign at the northern end of the State Highway 1 Tamahere straight was bowled flat today in a spectacular crash.
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.”
