Villagecranberry, it is a Lotus, not a Porsche.

Also, the article says "An elderly man has suffered a suspected broken leg after he was trapped in his car"..."He was cut from his car by firefighters"..."It is not known which car the elderly man was in."

Given that only one of the cars appears to have significant damage to the driver's compartment (the silver hatchback) and only one appears to have significant sections having been cut away (the rear door & support of the hatchback are missing and the roof shows signs of removal at the rear) I think it is pretty clear from the accompanying pictures which car he was in!
