BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
Nathan Harris was just as surprised as everyone else when he heard a loud noise inside his home and walked out to see an entire car submerged in his pool.
"I came out back and I saw that the fence was torn down out back and I saw that a car was going down the inside of the pool and water was everywhere. I didn't know if there was anybody in there then I saw a man and a lady flee across the back," said Harris.
Birmingham police said the crash happened just after 3 p.m. Tuesday. They say a man and his female passenger were driving in an east Birmingham neighborhood when the driver lost control of the car.
"It appears he was traveling straight down the street, somehow lost control of the vehicle, damaging a fence along with another gate and just sky rocketing and going into the pool," said Sgt. Johnny Williams with Birmingham Police Department.
Both the driver and the passenger got out without any injuries. Because the car is submerged it's hard for police to identify it and check whether it's registered to the driver.
As for drugs or alcohol and whether they're involved Sgt. Williams said, "we don't believe so at this time but right now he's being detained until we can retrieve the vehicle from the pool."
Retrieving the car is another problem in itself. Multiple tow trucks were called to pull the vehicle out but because of the terrain just getting the tow trucks in is problematic.
But for those who live at the home said they're just happy no one was hurt.
