Car winds up in Arlington home's pool after wreck

A car wound up in an Arlington home’s swimming pool after a two-vehicle wreck Wednesday.

The person inside the tan Nissan Sentra that went front end-first into the pool was able to get out of the car with help. The crash happened in the 1800 block of Glynn Oaks Drive.

One female was transported from the crash scene with minor injuries, according to Arlington police.

Another damaged vehicle in the backyard, a burgundy sedan, belongs to the homeowner and was most likely a barrier that slowed the Nisaan from going even further into the pool.

Police believe the Nissan may have collided with a pickup, which propelled it through a backyard fence and eventually into the pool.

"It had to be clipped at that angle because the vehicle ends up jumping a curb and then going through the fence,” said Steven Bartolotto, Arlington PD. “Best news is no one injured, no one seriously injured."

The crash scene seemed like something from an action movie.

"It was very loud, like a bomb sound. We kind of looked out our church window and we were just seeing a lady coming in and out of the backyard,” said witness Juana Rodriguez.

Rodriguez used her cell phone to snap a photo of first responders helping the woman out of the partially submerged car.

"They got her out, she was shaken up, she was standing up,” Rodriguez said. “They sat her back down until the ambulance got here and they took her."
