Warning: There Are Still Stupid People In The World

Whatever you do when you drive, don’t do this:

The Seattle Times reports that a woman test driving a car drove it into a pool in an apartment complex this morning:

Witnesses said the woman had arrived to look at a red Buick Riviera that was being sold. With the woman behind the wheel, the car careened westbound out of the parking lot, went through two chain-link fences and down a slight embankment before it came to rest in the condo swimming pool, they said.

NWCN elaborates a bit:

The woman, who has an instruction permit, started the car and somehow mistook the gas pedal for the brake, police said. The car jumped a parking stall curb and bolted out of the parking lot, driving over a telephone utility box and glancing off a tree before crashing through a chain link fence and diving into the pool.

Sigh.
