The driver of a pickup truck lost control and landed in a backyard pool shortly after noon. The accident happened on Bissonnet near Edloe in southwest Houston. A pickup truck headed westbound on Bissonnet lost control, smashed through a fence and landed on the edge of the pool.

There were no injuries, but the truck's driver appeared shaken up at the scene.

A tow truck driver borrowed swim trunks from the homeowner in order to dive into the pool to hook up the truck.

The homeowners say this isn't the first time a driver has crashed through the fence. They have complained to the city in an effort to get some type of barriers erected.
