CHANDLER, Ariz. -- A man lost control of his car Tuesday and crashed it through a wall then into a backyard swimming pool.

The driver was able to crawl out of the Mercedes sedan and was taken to the hospital as a precaution. No one else was injured.

The crash happened near the intersection of Elgin and Fairview streets in Chandler Tuesday afternoon.

Neighbors called 911 after hearing the crash and were stunned to see a luxury car in the pool. The front end was completely submerged with just the trunk and back wheels sticking out.

The impact of the crash was so strong, it sent chunks of the block wall flying across the yard.

The homeowner said his insurance should cover the damage.

Chandler police have not said whether the driver will be cited.
