The term "carpool" was given a whole new meaning Thursday after a person drove their car into the swimming pool of a home in Clairemont.

According to police, the accident happened around 2:40 p.m. and involved two separate homes.

Police say the driver first plowed through the garage of a home in the 4600 block of Lehrer Street and then wound up in the backyard pool of a home in the 5000 block of Brillo Street.

Fire Department officials say the driver was able to get out of the car and sustained minor injuries in the accident, including a cut to the hand.

Police officers provided traffic control at the scene.

By 5:20 p.m., the car had been pulled from the swimming pool with the help of a tow truck.

Officials are investigating the cause of the incident.
