An interesting morning for a Carmichael homeowner, who woke up to find a car in her backyard pool.

Sometime in the early morning hours, a driver lost control and slammed through a fence near Dewey Drive and Winding Way in Carmichael. The car then plunged into a backyard swimming pool.

At some point, the driver got out and ran off.

When the elderly homeowner woke up, she found the red car at the bottom of the pool.

Officers say there were needles and alcohol found inside the car after they pulled it up to the surface.

They are now trying to track down who may have been behind the wheel.

No one at the home was injured.
