PASADENA (CNS) - A car crashed and ended up in a swimming pool of a residence in Pasadena Tuesday, but no one was hurt.

Paramedics and police were sent to the 700 block of West California Boulevard about 9 a.m., said Lisa Derderian of the city of Pasadena.

"A Tesla driver hit the accelerator instead of the brake, drove through a wall and into a pool," Derderian said in a statement.

Derderian told City News Service that two staff members at a preschool next door to the residence rescued the car's occupants -- two adults and a 4-year-old child.

"The good Samaritans jumped in and saved them before it submerged -- more than likely saved them from injury or worse," Derderian said.

The circumstances of the crash remained under investigation.
