A homeowner in Arizona experienced a terrifying incident when a Tesla crashed through his concrete wall and ended up in his pool. Fortunately, the driver survived without harm, although the car and the yard were significantly damaged.

The incident took place near 35th and Beardsley Rd. in Glendale, Arizona. Homeowner Joe Papineau claims that he heard a sound like an explosion while resting in his bed.

Papineau believes that the Tesla driver was driving southbound on 35th Street when another car suddenly pulled out in front of them. In an attempt to avoid a collision, the Tesla driver made a maneuver but unfortunately ended up in Papineau’s backyard.

Papineau had recently renovated his backyard, including new landscaping and improvements to the pool. Despite the loss of his hard work, he didn’t hesitate to jump into the pool to rescue the driver.

Despite significant damage to the Tesla, including a destroyed windshield and front end, the driver only sustained minor injuries. There were no other passengers in the car at the time of the accident. The police are still investigating and have not yet released an official statement.

Tesla crashes into backyard swimming pools have become more common in recent months. In January, a Tesla crashed into a backyard pool in San Rafael, California.

The Glendale incident follows a slew of negative headlines about Tesla’s Autopilot feature. In late July, the California Attorney General’s office announced that it was investigating Tesla due to reports of cars automatically braking while on Autopilot.

It’s not yet clear whether the Autopilot feature was enabled at the time of the Glendale crash. Nevertheless, the incident is likely to make growing public doubts about Autopilot even stronger.
