CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Authorities in Massachusetts said a valet driver slammed his foot on the wrong pedal and ended up parking an SUV in a condo complex's indoor pool.

Cambridge police said they were called to the building on Museum Way at 11:18 p.m. Thursday and they arrived to find the Jeep Grand Cherokee lodged in the condominium complex's indoor pool.

Police said the driver slammed his foot down on the wrong pedal while moving the vehicle and ended up crashing through a ground floor window into the building.

"The car actually did enter the pool and they had to tow it out of the pool," police spokesman Jeremy Warnick told Boston.com.

The driver was able to get out of the car and was taken to a hospital to treat a minor leg injury.

"There haven't been any charges or citations associated with this," Warnick said. "It was an accident."

Police said crews were able to extract the SUV from the pool about 1 a.m.
