A swimmer was injured as the car landed in the pool, and the car’s driver also was taken to a hospital following the crash reported just before 3 p.m. at the gym, 45 West Alex Bell Road. Police described both injuries as “non-serious.”
Investigators are working to determine how the crash happened, but they do not believe it was not a result of any medical conditions.
Two other people in the swimming area were not injured, police said.
“It definitely could have been a lot worse,” Centerville police Sgt. Jeff Kaercher said.
Jim Lee of Xenia was at the fitness center when he saw all the commotion.
“I was just working out and then I saw a bunch of people running toward the locker room,” Lee said. “I walked out and there’s a car in the pool.”
