Douglas County Sheriff Harve Gjesdal reports the driver of a pick-up truck was injured when he crashed his vehicle into a swimming pool. The Sheriff reports in a Tuesday afternoon news release:

 

On 12/27/16 at approximately 9:46 AM RiverCom dispatch received a report of an injury accident in the 2800 Blk. of Breckenridge Drive.  Deputies responded and found a pickup truck upside-down in a swimming pool at a residence.  The investigation revealed that a 16 year old male had been driving the vehicle S/B at the 2900 Blk. of N. Baker when he lost control on the ice.  The vehicle went off the roadway and slid about 100 feet down a side hill.  It then hit a retaining wall which caused it to flip upside down and into the swimming pool of a residence.  The driver managed to escape by removing the head rest of his seat then using the metal bars to break a window.  The driver was transported to Confluence Hospital for treatment.  His current condition is not known.
