A man from Los Angeles, believed to be in his 80s, has accidentally driven his car into a swimming pool after getting his sandals tangled up in the pedals.

He managed to escape the vehicle unharmed before it sank to the bottom of the pool. Fortunately, at the time of the incident, there was nobody there. Police said the white sedan, which appears to be a last generation Ford Fusion/Mondeo, shot through the back door of his garage and jumped into the water with low speed.

Captain Jeffrey Sims of the Los Angeles County Fire Department explained to CBS that the man's flip flops got caught in the car's pedals and he was unable to brake in time.
