Gear mistake flattens sports car

Police are investigating a crash in which a £30,000 jeep ended upparked on top of two other cars, one of them a Porsche sports car worth up to £45,000.

It happened at about 1700 BST in the car park of the Co-Op supermarket on Belfast's Lisburn Road.

It is believed the female driver may have mistakenly put the automatic jeep into drive instead of reverse.

When she accelerated, the car mounted the Porsche and a Toyota Celica which were parked directly in front of her.

The Porsche Boxster was damaged on its wing and bonnet, while the Toyota Celica was crushed.

One person, believed to be the Porsche driver, was taken to hospital.

His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening

Dominic Montague, who works in a nearby coffee shop, saw the aftermath of the crash.

"I saw the woman who drove the jeep and she just looked befuddled, she couldn't really understand what was going on - which is probably understandable enough if you drove a car out over two other cars," he said.

The BBC spoke to the driver of the Toyota, but he said he was "not in the mood to give interviews".
