Suspected Drunken Driver Crashes Into Buena Park Swimming Pool, Say Police

"I think I might still be dreaming," says a witness

Four college students in Buena Park were awoken in the middle of the night when a suspected drunken driver crashed through a wall, landing his pick-up truck in their swimming pool, said police.

"I think I might still be dreaming. It was the middle of the night and I heard a loud shake and a bang, and I thought we were having an earthquake," said tenant Ernie Duarte.

"I look outside my back window and I hear a guy yelling for help and then there's a big truck in my pool. It's crazy right now," Duarte said.

The crash happened about 1:20 a.m. Thursday in the 6400 block of Dale Street in Buena Park, said Sgt. Eileen Jones of Buena Park police.

The 25-year-old driver was able to escape his vehicle and swim out of the pool. He was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, said Jones.

The driver was not injured in the crash, Jones said.
