An unlucky car owner is now missing a wing mirror after parking too close to the train tracks in a coastal North Canterbury town tonight.

Emergency services were called to Hapuku, north of Kaikoura, at 7.34pm after a train clipped the wing mirror of a parked car.

No one was in the vehicle at the time.

A southern fire communications spokesman said the area was frequented by surfers and parking was always an issue.

A fire truck attended the scene and helped police to conduct traffic control.
