LA PUENTE, Calif. (AP) — The Diaz family awoke to find a Lexus at the bottom of their swimming pool.

The Southern California family tells the San Gabriel Valley Tribune (http://bit.ly/L0zjqa) that drivers navigating the tricky intersection next to their house in La Puente have hit their cinderblock wall before, but early Sunday one of them smashed right through it in his silver sedan, then sank into the pool. A crane later fished out the 2006 Lexus.

California Highway Patrol officer Steve Licon says the driver — 40-year-old Modesto Cabral — was able to escape from the car through the passenger side window and had only minor injuries.

Jail records show he was booked on suspicion of drunken driving and was being held on $10,000 bail. It is not clear whether he's hired an attorney.
