A truck has become wedged under the high forecourt roof of a Z fuel station in North Canterbury.

The Z station in Amberley is "out of action for a while", according to a post on Facebook.

The Facebook picture shows tape around the forecourt.

Comparing the Facebook picture with an earlier image of the Z station emphasises the significant damage that appears to have been caused by the impact of the truck, including one of the roof's supports seeming to be on a lean.

The Z website identifies two Z stations in Amberley: one called Z Amberley, and the other the Z Amberley truck stop. It appears that the roof incident occurred at the former.

A reply to the original Facebook post says, "Damn.. and isn't there a truck stop for gas right across the road from there lol."
