It wasn't the best start to the 4th of July for this driver - whose car ended up in a hotel swimming pool.

The elderly woman is said to have accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brakes sending her vehicle crashing through a fence.

She was going between 50mph and 60mph when her car plunged into the the pool at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado, police said.

Luckily she escaped with only minor injuries after being rescued by passersby.

And no one else was hurt as the pool was empty at the time.

The pool had to be drained to removed the vehicle.

It is thought the driver will likely face careless driving charges.
