MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. (WFLA/NBC) – A driving lesson in Maryland went off the deep end when a car landed in a community swimming pool this weekend.

Rescue crews in Montgomery County were called to the incident at a community center on Saturday afternoon, according to NBC Washington.

The responders found a four-door sedan mostly submerged, with the hood completely underwater.

A fire department spokesman said two people were in the car. One person was helping the other practice their parking.

Investigators say the car jumped a curb and crashed through a fence before landing in the pool. The spokesman called it “driver error.”

Both people in the car were able to get out on their own and were not hurt. 

Thankfully the pool was closed for the season when the crash happened.
