HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police say an 85-year-old man has died after his luxury car accelerated through a garage, crashed through a wall and plunged into a swimming pool at the home next door.
A woman in the car managed to get out. Police say the driver of the Tesla could not. He was pronounced dead at a hospital after the Sunday afternoon crash. His name hasn’t been released.
Ann Bolton, the sister of the woman who survived, tells Houston television station KPRC she believes the driver may have mistakenly hit the gas pedal instead of the brake.
