PAINT ROCK — A single-vehicle accident left a compact SUV partially submerged in a residential swimming pool just off S.R. 456 here Thursday morning — and the driver, fortunately, uninjured.

The accident occurred on the stretch of Paint Rock Road on the east side of Carson Hill shortly after 6:30 a.m.

Charles Jeffers, the owner of the home where the accident occurred, told Scott County Sheriff's Department officers that he and his family heard what they thought was thunder, but they soon learned that an older model Geo Tracker had crashed through a decorative concrete block wall and was in his pool.
