7 News spoke to T.J. Yarborough, a witness who saw the incident

“I’m just going home to eat my lunch, that car came crashing into the pool,” said Yarborough.

Yarborough helped the driver who was in the pool.

“She was pretty shocked, she’s a young girl and I can imagine how shook she was, she was gathering her phone in her purse but the water was coming up,” said Yarborough. “I couldn’t get the door open but the window, the electric still works on the window, so the window still went down. She started climbing through the window and I just grabbed her and put her to the side.”

The vehicle was lifted up and the driver is stable.

“She is good, she is safe, she is just a little shook up,” said Yarborough.

Fire Rescue authorities confirmed that there were no reported injuries.
