CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill.—No one was injured when a vehicle crashed into a wading pool full of rollicking children in a quiet neighborhood Wednesday afternoon. Around 3:45 p.m., a red and yellow Cozy Coupe was seen traveling toward the pool at a high rate of speed. Unable to stop in time, the driver slammed into the side of the pool, causing ripples but no injuries. The sole occupant of the Coupe, identified only as Oliver, age 1, hit his head on the steering wheel but fled the scene giggling. He was later apprehended. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
The occupants of the pool continued to play as though nothing had happened. When questioned about the incident, they responded, “Huh?”
Authorities remind residents to practice pool and vehicle safety for the rest of the summer.
