Lexus rollover in parking lottery


Three cars were involved in the accident which happened in a car park on Belfast's Lisburn Road

Police are investigating a crash in which a 30,000 SUV ended up parked 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.

Both cars were damaged, although the SUV escaped largely unscathed

The vehicle, an automatic Lexus, drove over the Porsche and a Toyota Celica, which were parked directly in front.

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.

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