    Apparently the driver did not understand what TFP means by "SLAM"

    Re: Car in pool

    A few cool things here. It's an above ground pool (or partially buried) so bonus points for that. They picked a pool that at least provided some opportunity to still breath up near the roof. And of course, the liner is still in tact!

    Re: Car in pool

    Had that happen when I was about 10 years old... (holy crapola, 30 years ago). We were swimming in a neighbors inground pool and got out after being in for a couple hours. We were standing on the patio when a loud crash was heard. A large car came through the back cinderblock wall which separated the back yard from the rear parking lot of a strip mall. Memory is foggy, but I kinda remember them saying that the dad was adding coolant to the car or something and left the engine running with a young kid in the front seat. The kid put it in drive and the rest was on the news later that night. Thankfully nobody was hurt.
    Pool done!!
