An incident unfolded at an Ampol petrol station in North Queensland when an army truck collided with the premises on the Bruce Highway at Sarina. Emergency responders were quick to the scene, where photographs captured the aftermath of the collision. Fortunately, despite the significant damage caused by the truck, including toppling part of the station’s roof and knocking over a bowser, there was no fuel spill to contend with.

The truck was en route from Brisbane to Townsville for a military exercise known as Exercise Vigilant Scimitar. Two individuals inside the truck managed to exit safely, and no injuries were reported. Authorities, including Defence and Queensland Police, are collaborating to secure the area and facilitate the removal of the vehicle.

Engineers are set to assess the extent of the damage at the site later today, determining its operational options moving forward. The Ampol station, although operating under the brand, is not company-owned. As investigations continue, firefighters and emergency services remain vigilant, ensuring the safety of the area following this unexpected crash.
