Driver crashes into Marin County pool

MARIN COUNTY, Calif. (KTVU) - A driver had to swim to safety Thursday in Marin County after her car ended up in a backyard pool.

The car crashed into the pool at a home on Mill Valley on Lovell Avenue.

The Marin IJ reports the woman driving the car escaped unharmed, although the Toyota Prius was a total loss.

Firefighters were called to the scene. They had some concerns about the powerful batteries on board the hybrid car, but that turned out not to be a problem.

There's no word how the driver lost control of the car.
