A 17-year-old Florida teenager was fleeing the scene of an accident when he crashed his Chevy into a swimming pool in the Tampa area. He crashed into a black Hyundai parked on the road, then sped off, driving through a fence and screened enclosure and straight into an underground pool.
The boy was charged with reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident. He was uninjured and caused about $30,000 worth of damages.
Luckily, no one was hurt in this reckless driving accident. That is not always the case though. Someone could have been in the pool, or the boy himself could have been seriously injured. Reckless driving is not uncommon in Florida, and pedestrians, cyclists, and other drivers often end up being victims.
