A collision between two vehicles has caused part of an engine from one of the cars to fly from the crash like a missile - hurtling straight into a nearby petrol bowser.

Incredible CCTV footage has captured the moment the engine smashes through the petrol pump, forcing the bowser to twist 90 degrees.
