A driver in Lutz, Florida received a bit of moist final week after driving their Dodge Nitro right into a yard swimming pool.
In response to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Workplace, the motive force tried to keep away from one other automotive and combined up the gasoline and brake pedals, flattening a road signal, smashing by a fence, and finally plunging into any individual’s pool. No accidents have been reported.
Considerably satirically, this occurred on the nook of Blind Pond Avenue and Blessed Place. There is a joke in there someplace however I am not gifted sufficient to determine what it’s.
As humorous as this incident appears, it is essential to bear in mind how tragic this might’ve been. If the household that lives right here determined to go for a dip on the identical time the Nitro driver had their mishap, this story might’ve ended very in a different way.
Curiously, massive automobiles crashing into swimming swimming pools appears to be a yearly incidence. Final August, a freakin’ sewage truck, of all issues, discovered itself tires-side-up in a Pennsylvania pool, undoubtedly ruining the summers—and appetites—of any youngsters who lived there. The yr earlier than that, an unattended Ford F-150 Raptor rolled right into a San Diego pool whereas a feminine passenger was nonetheless inside.
For these unfamiliar with the Dodge Nitro, it was a funkily styled SUV first launched in 2007. It regarded as tall because the Magnum was lengthy and it was out there in rear- or all-wheel drive. It went out of manufacturing in 2012 and we’ve not actually considered it since.
