Here is my best explanation:

'car' is the definition.
(diner is a kind of car)

'a person in it' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'in' is present in the answer.
'it' could be 'e' ('e' can mean 'electronic' which is similar to 'IT') and 'e' is present in the answer.
'person' could be 'dr' (Dr is an example) and 'dr' is found in the remaining letters.
This accounts for all the letters.
This explanation may well be incorrect...

'or' acts as a link.
