Pickup lands in Arizona family's backyard pool

It’s either coincidence or just a really bad spot to build a house. A pickup truck landed upside down in the backyard swimming pool of a Phoenix family’s home early Friday morning, making it the third time such an accident has happened at their home that is located at the intersection of Tatum Blvd and Dixileta Drive.

The event unfolded shortly after 1:30 am when the driver of the pickup, who was under the influence, missed the turn and plowed right through the cinder block wall and into the pool of the home’s backyard.

The home’s owner, James Feely, and his wife were showered with glass and bricks that flew through their bedroom window. The driver ended up with minor injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. He was then handed over to detectives.
