Well, looks like the department of poolboy studies just went overbudget.

this "lakefront property" seems a lot smaller than in the brochure...

I think it's safe to say that the pool's closed.

Looks like someone wanted to take ALL the lanes today!

Rosemary Street is off of North Quincy Avenue in the northeast corner of the city. There were tire marks in the driveway across North Quincy Avenue from Pierro's home, indicating that he had backed out the camper, then for some reason accelerated forward through a strand of trees, a fence and into the Little's pool.

Area in question

+1 on the headline, subs - good work!

BMW makes RVs now?

As the tow truck pulled the RV out towards the street, a gaping hole could be seen on the right side of the vehicle.

So the elderly wife died in the crash?
 
2012-08-01 10:56:20 PM
I see the problem, looks like water in the carberator.

We don't swim in your RV so Please don't RV in our pool

I've crashed RVs in Brockton, Ogdenville, and North Haverbrook, and by golly it put them on the map!

Nope, see the one in the upper right half under a tree? That's the one. When they showed the video on the local news you could see the trail of debris from the direction it came from.

fark. I was on a roll. At least I found the right house. The RV I circled is a different model from the one in the pool, but it's been four years so I figured someone could have gone shopping or leased another in that time period. Driving through a plastic fence in reverse along pavement seems the simplest accidental route, but until I find the video it looks/sounds like the RV was in fact driven through a stand of trees in forward-gear. That takes dedication, booze, or a heart-attack.

One of the comments on the website claimed that shifting to neutral or braking won't help. I call bull$hi!. My first thought would be to disengage the powertrain and brake, then hit the warning flashers and coast to a safe place to stop. How does a stuck accelerator pedal lead to transmission and brake failure? They are independent of one another. I don't know what I despise more - lies or stupidity.

Holy crap. Just a few blocks from me and it makes the Fark main page.
News choppers were circling over the neighborhood for hours.

The driver of the 30-foot motor home, who lives nearby, apparently lost control of the vehicle and crashed it into his neighbor's in-ground pool..."

images.wikia.com

Looking at the slideshow of the recovery, there's a good gap from the edge of the driveway to the pool. I own a bigger RV than that and there's no reason at all to be going so fast in a driveway that the driver can't stop in that distance. And an RV doesn't "leap" if you accidentally stomp the gas instead of the brakes. It's like the steamroller scene from Austin Powers.

In my non-humble opinion, it would take some weapons grade derp to pull that off.

That's easy. Stupidity.

Local news reports talked to the driver's wife and the two guys that pulled him out of the pool. His wife said he was diabetic and the two guys that pulled him from the pool said something was wrong with him. When they got him out of the pool he couldn't even stand up but didn't have any injuries from the accident itself.. He was taken to the hospital but they didn't have any status on him at the time.

Indubitably: "Rich people's problems," he muttered.


In Brockton? More like upper-working-class people's problems.

Place does not always equal state, and if you'd like to argue that RV ownership does not include "rich people's problems" from my perspective, and the from the character's perspective, I refute you.

You're relabeling.

;)

P.S. It's a line of dialogue I'm testing for my book, man. *note to self: success!*
