According to the post by Lakewood Police, the teen was cited for careless driving after the incident. The car involved in the drama was a black Infiniti, and it was photographed floating in the pool water.

Netizens wanted a more conclusive version of what happened before the car landed in the water. The online community was quick to offer its own version of events.

BROUGHT TO BOOK
"Give the kid a break ... just wanted to clean the car," one netizen jokingly expressed. While people were happy to hear that nobody was harmed because of this accident, a few held other opinions.
Some commentators hoped the driver would be brought to book. One user said: "I hope that young driver is going to be written a citation for something."
