Car lands in swimming pool after crashing through fence
A PENSIONER made a splash after her car crashed through a garden fence and landed in a swimming pool.
The 83-year-old's red Vauxhall Corsa crashed through a garden fence in Foxborough Road, Radley, this morning.
The garden belonged to doctor Denisa Wilkes, who was inside the house with her husband Nicholas and their six-year-old daughter Juliana when the accident happened at around 10.40am.
Dr Wilkes, 32, said: “I heard a knock so I looked out the window and all I could see was this red car in my swimming pool.
“She was just sitting there completely unscathed, I said ‘are you OK?’ and she said ‘yes, I am fine’.
“It must have been very slow-motion, five miles per hour or something because she just fell in vertically.
“It is not what you expect on a Wednesday morning.”
Juliana said: “I was inside watching telly, and dad told me to look out the window.
“I saw the ambulance and police cars and fire engines and a car in my swimming pool.”
