Teen Drives Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Into Texas Pool: Video


If you're Jeremy Clarkson or anyone involved with one of the Cannonball Run movies, driving a car into a swimming pool is hilarious. If you're not, it really isn't.

Anyone looking to go for a swim at a certain Harris County, Texas, community pool was--to say the least--inconvenienced when a brand-new 2014 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was driven into it. This moment of schadenfreude is brought to you by txGarage.

The driver reportedly lost control, crashed through a fence, and plunged straight into the pool. According to txGarage's Chris Rucker--who said he'd seen him earlier that day at a Houston Cars and Coffee event that morning--he looked to be no more than 17 or 18 years old.

Police told Click2Houston that the driver could be charged with speeding. He may also be responsible for repairs to the fence and pool, not to mention his own ego.

The ZL1 will likely need some TLC as well. Watching water gush from its open door, it's apparent that there's a long and expensive road ahead before the car has any chance of running again.

With a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 producing 580 horsepower, a ZL1 is admittedly not the best car for a new driver. It's unfortunate this driver had to find that out the hard way.
