A car smashed through the wall of a swim school in Island Heights on Saturday and ended up in the pool. Crews had to remove a section of the wall at the Pied Piper Swim School to get the car out of the building.

Fortunately, no one was in the building at the time of the accident, and the driver is ok. He was out of the car by the time police and fire crews arrived. Island Heights Police told The Press of Atlantic City the driver thought he had put the car in reverse, but instead drove forward.

Police did not release the name or age of the driver and did not say whether the driver was impaired at the time of the crash.

The Toms River Special Operations Team helped remove a section of the wall, so tow crews could remove the vehicle.
