Third Vehicle Crashes Into Phoenix Home in Less Than Two Years; Latest Wreck Ended With Truck in Pool

The residents of a north Phoenix home may want to consider moving -- early this morning, for the third time in two years, a vehicle crashed into their property, this time into their pool.

According to the Phoenix Police Department, about 1:40 a.m. today, a man described by police only as a 32-year-old white male was driving his 2004 Ford pickup truck down Dixiletta Drive when he failed to negotiate a turn at the roads intersection with Tatum Boulevard and crashed through a retaining wall, into the backyard of the home, and ended up "nose first" in a backyard pool.

According to the homeowner, this is the third time a vehicle has crashed into the home in the last two years, Phoenix police spokesman Steve Martos tells New Times.

When rescue crews arrived, the driver was getting out of the truck, which at the point was in the pool.

The driver told rescuers he was alone, and after promptly draining the pool (take note Tempe P.D.), it was determined he was the only person in the vehicle when he decided to take it for a swim.

Turns out, the driver was drunk. It also turns out he was being sought by the Scottsdale Police Department for questioning in a domestic violence/arson investigation.

Details of the domestic violence investigation were not immediately available this morning.

The driver was taken to a hospital and treated for minor injuries. He was later turned over to Scottsdale police.

No one in the home was injured.

That house is just pure bad luck. I think they will need a priest to excorcise the house and bless it.

Everyone thinks they're an F-1 driver these days. Those tight turns in these little neighborhoods are like chicanes.

There is nothing more pathetic that a person who feels the needto change EVERY conversation into his own sad political bitchfest.

No wonder no one ever invites you to parties. No one EVER wants to be around you. Because no matter what they are talking about you just whine like a fuckiong little bitch about politics, thinking your chkildish insults makes YOU sound intelligent. (Hint: They don't.)

wow, talk about childish. for somebody who's upset about unrelated comments you sure pull a lot of unrelated info from that guys comment. nothing you said is based on anything Rob put forth in his one sentence inquiry. perhaps if you could make an argument that wasn't built entirely of baseless assumptions and insults people might take you more seriously (hint: they don't), but i would expect nothing less from your kind.
