Off the deep end: U-Haul truck found in backyard pool

U.S. & World

A Las Vegas man’s mistake behind the wheel resulted in an unusual sight Wednesday: a U-Haul truck in a swimming pool.

Police say the driver was pulling the truck into the yard to load it when he accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake.

Thankfully, the pool was empty and no one was hurt.

A large tow truck was brought in to remove the vehicle.

“When we got the call originally, we kind of didn’t believe it. We needed some visual evidence, so we asked for a picture. In fact, the truck was in the pool,” said tow truck driver Jose Norena.
