You might think you’re imagining things but you’re not. In the garden of a home in Brockton, Massachusetts are highly unusual sight.

After a freak accident, this 30-foot-long motorhome in now in the last place it should be.

The owner was backing out of his driveway when he lost control, and the vehicle veered quite drastically off course ending up in the swimming pool of his neighbour across the road.

Firefighters managed to get the driver out and take him to hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.

It looks the same can’t be said for either the pool or the motorhome for that matter, it’s now being removed.


Interesting words: freak (strange), motorhome (car for life on holiday), back out (go back), driveway (way between your house and a street), treated (being helped in hospital), minor (small), for that matter (also).
