According to recent articles released by local news agencies, a 40-year-old man is now being accused of driving his vehicle through a cinder block wall straight into the backyard swimming pool of a family’s property.
According to the official accident report issued by the California Highway Patrol, the crashed Lexus was found inside of the pool with pieces of the wall stuck to the car’s windshield around 5:25 a.m. last Sunday. According to one account, the family woke up to a crash noise and found the man climbing out of the drowning vehicle.
The family claims that another vehicle crashed into their wall once before and they always feared someone would end up driving straight into the pool.
It’s not yet known exactly what may have caused the accident or if the driver was attempting to make a dangerous turn before he drove straight into the wall. No detailed information related to what happened before the moment the vehicle was found has been disclosed to the media.
The California Highway Patrol used a crane to remove the crashed car out of the pool. Emergency crews were called to the scene but the driver only sustained minor wounds.
At this moment, the authorities are investigating the crash that reportedly was caused by the 40-year-old motorist while he was intoxicated.
No other injuries were reported. More details should be revealed as soon as the CHP finishes the investigation.
