Woman awakens to car crashing in pool

Samantha Pearson was sound asleep this morning when she heard a big crash.

"I heard someone yell help and so I looked in the back yard and I seen her in the pool and I seen the car," she said.

The driver crashed through her own privacy fence, then through another privacy fence, and into Pearson's pool!
  
Damage to the driver's car was extensive.  When Pearson saw what happened, she couldn't believe her eyes.

"I was shocked," she said. "I was asleep and I see a car in our pool. This is crazy."

Rescue crews put a ladder into the pool and the driver climbed right out.  Officers on the scene  they believe the woman mistook the gas pedal for the brake.  Charges have not yet been filed in the accident.
