Driver in Florida crashes car through stranger's backyard, skims across pool

A woman who reportedly lost control of her vehicle has crashed through the backyard of a property in Miami, Florida. 

The car was travelling at such a high speed that it skimmed across the homeowner's pool. 

Footage of the incident, captured on the family's CCTV system, shows the SUV smashing through a fence and hurtling across the pool water, coming to a rest on the street out front.

It's understood the driver suffered a medical event behind the wheel, believed to be diabetic shock, according to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue personnel. The woman is reportedly hospitalised but her condition is unclear.

The homeowner told local media he was grateful it was an overcast day, otherwise his children would have been playing outside at the time of the crash. Their toys are visible around the pool in the footage.
