New York, USA — An Uber driver crashed into someone’s backyard and landed into their 10-foot deep pool, police say.
According to initial investigations, the vehicle allegedly veered off the highway, crashed through a neighbor’s fence, went airborne and landed in the Wrynn family’s pool.
Mrs. Wrynn was left surprised after noticing a deluge of water outside her residence during a sunny Wednesday morning.
“I looked out the kitchen window, and I see water dripping down all the windows in the back of the house,” she said. “I was like, ‘What happened?’ Then, I noticed the top of the car. I was like, ‘Oh, my goodness.’”
Furthermore, the 66-year-old driver and his male passenger were reportedly trapped inside the vehicle as water began pouring in.
Moreover, emergency responders quickly arrived, broke the windows and rescued the victims. The two were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
“Very grateful no one was injured. That’s all we care about. Everything else looks terrible but can be fixed,” homeowner Colm Wrynn said.
Meanwhile, it took hours of planning and the power of two tow trucks to pull the car out of the pool.
Police are investigating if any foul play was involved in the incident. It is still unclear if the Uber driver was on an active call when it went off course.
