Skip to comments.Car in Pool: Campbell Woman Drives Camry Into Swimming Pool
Posted on 04/21/2014 4:11:59 PM PDT by nickcarraway
Investigators are saying it's fortunate no one was hurt when an elderly woman drove her car into a Campbell swimming pool over the weekend.
Capt. Charlie Adams added that it was likely scary for the Camry's driver. But, thankfully, neither she nor anyone else at the Casa de Rosa apartments on South Bascom sustained injury when she hit the gas instead of the brakes on Sunday, he said.
Witnesses said the woman drove straight into the pool and even left the engine running, but she managed to get out and run into her daughter's apartment.
Since no one was injured, Adams said police didn't even file a report.
Somehow that looks far more elegant than driving into a drainage ditch.
According to Farmers and Liberty Mutual commercials only men (and especially White men) are get into stupid car accidents
“Who’s the U-Boat Commander?”
Is the Apartment Complex named after Ted Kennedy?
Hehehehehehehehe......I see whatcha done...ha, carpool;-)
Felony fleeing the scene of an accident. Shoot the dawg.
She should have woken up her passenger.
LOL!!! Best post so far...
“That’ll buff right out”
Water doesn't compress very well (in a 4-cylinder engine)...
Saw a better one a couple blocks from the house several years ago. A lady drove into someone’s front door. Didn’t fit too well. The plates read BEERRN.
The car gets totaled, plenty of property damage to the fence and pool....yep, who would need a police report for the insurance company? Lazy cops.
Is it me or,are,there an awful lot more house crashes lot of late?
Given that it’s a Toyota, it was probably still running when they pulled it out of the pool.
If it waz Me there would have at least been FLAMES!!!
Fortunately, she didn't go off the deep end.
Speaking of which, yesterday a guy driving a flatbed loaded to the top of the cab with tons of long steel pipes cut a corner too close, ended up with the trailer tires on the passenger side in a really deep drainage ditch. Straps holding pipes had broken and the pipes were everywhere. Police were there, had shut the street down but were just standing there scratching their heads trying to figure out what to do.
Listened to the driver trying to explain something to one of the policeman. Problem was that driver apparently could only speak Spanish and policeman only spoke English. Went by same intersection this morning and nothing had been moved but there was enough space for one lane of traffic to get through.
If this had happened in Houston instead of in the suburbs, someone would have figured out a way to haul all that steel away and sell it for scrap.
Lemme guess, The accelerator pedal stuck.
What, no dog for the cops to kill?
