LAKEWOOD, CO (KDVR) – No one was hurt after a vehicle ended up in a pool in Colorado on Thursday afternoon.
Police in Lakewood say the incident occurred when a teen driver accidentally put the vehicle — an Infiniti — in reverse. The driver and the adult passenger got out safely. The teen driver has been cited for careless driving.
Police thanked fire crews for helping with the follow-up work, as well as a local towing company that assisted officers in getting the car out of the water.
The incident, while serious, also inspired a few “carpool” jokes on Twitter. But the Lakewood Police offered up their own knee-slapper, which they deemed to be the best possible one-liner.
“Just FYI, the best line for this is ‘Check out our new Infiniti Pool.’ Everyone else is battling for second place.”
