A motorist plunged into a swimming pool in Colorado after a series of collisions.

The 73-year-old woman was driving from the country club when she first hit a auto, drove up the hill and went airborne through a fence, finally landing in the pool, say officers.

Driving up to 60mph, the woman hit a nearby vehicle before driving up a hill, through a fence and was sent flying airborne into the water. "In an instant the auto was submerged and under water", Youso said, while explaining how he rescued her.

No one was in the pool at the time. She couldn't get her seatbelt undone, so I unbuckled her seatbelt.

The 73-year-old woman had had driven her Lincoln MKX up the embankment, over the fence and landed in the pool.

Three citizens ran into the pool to help the woman out before she was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said she also hit another vehicle, which caused minor damage.

Cheyenne Mountain Resort is located at 3225 Broadmoor Valley Road in Colorado Springs.

A man walking nearby jumped into the pool to help the woman get out of the auto, KRDO reports.
