The crash happened at about 6:30am local time on Sunday ay Heywood’s Yarnbrook Road near Trowbridge. Firefighters were called to the scene, where the McLaren was found on fire and crashed into a porch which had collapsed.

Comments From First Responders
The firefighter service tweeted about the incident, saying: “Crews from Trow-Fire-Stn attended an incident involving a McLaren that crashed into a building on Yarnbrook Road, Heywood.”
They also issued a statement, saying: “Crews from Trowbridge Fire Station attended an incident involving a McLaren that crashed into a building on Yarnbrook Road. They found the occupants had been released prior to their arrival and the vehicle was alight. Fire was extinguished and made safe.”
Damien Bence, a firefighter on the scene, said that it was “absolutely amazing” that the car’s occupants had walked away with minor injuries.
“Prior to hitting the building it snapped an electric pole in half, and forced the top half of the pole through the window of the house,” he said. “We were confronted with a live electrical cable which was strewn across the highway so crews had to negotiate their way through part of a wood in order to get to the incident.”
