A 17-year-old girl lost control of her father’s car and crashed into a swimming pool after taking it for a spin while he was asleep.

The accident, which took place in Columbia, was captured on CCTV cameras in the early hours of the morning.

The teenager took her dad’s car to drive two friends, also believed to be teenage girls, to buy pizza while her dad was fast asleep in bed.

The footage shows the vehicle flipping over sideways and landing upside down in the swimming pool in the courtyard of a private house in the city’s central Colseguros neighbourhood.

The driver is seen being flung through a window as the car rolls into the water, and she’s left lying, seemingly unconscious, by the poolside.

A few seconds later, the two passengers are seen pulling themselves out of the pool before checking on their badly injured friend.

All three teens were rushed to a nearby hospital by ambulance. There’s no report on their latest condition.

Police have launched an investigation into the accident and tested the teenage driver to determine whether she was had been drinking.

The result has not yet been released.

The girl’s father, whose name isn’t known, confirmed that his daughter had taken the car while he was sleeping.
