Authorities say the driver has been detained after a pickup truck splashed into the pool of an apartment complex Monday night.

Police and firefighters responded to an apartment complex near 19th and Northern avenues just before 7 p.m.

Firefighters say the driver was able to get to dry land safely and did not require medical treatment.

A neighbor told an ABC15 photographer that the driver tried to run away from police officers.

A Phoenix Police Department spokesman said the driver was detained and transported for processing, though the possibility remained he could receive citations and not officially arrested.

Police said impairment is suspected in the crash.

No further information was immediately available.
