The vehicle crashed through a homeowner’s wooden fence before splashing into the in-ground swimming hole.

‘OOPS! That’s not where this goes,’ Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a tweet while sharing photos of the incident. 

The photos show the SUV is almost completely submerged in the water after possibly knocking down a street sign along the way.

Fortunately, authorities said no one was injured. 

‘Next time, it might be better to grab your swim trunks instead,’ the sheriff added.

The sheriff’s department has not commented on whether any citations were issued.
