ALLIANCE, OH (WOIO) - Two neighbors pulled a girl to safety after the truck she was driving took off through the neighborhood and drove into a pool.

Bud Miles was unloading his pickup truck while his daughter was in the driver's seat when the truck took off across Knox School Road.

The truck reportedly went across the street, through some trees and into a fence before splashing into a backyard pool.

Two men working on their roof saw the truck dive into the water and ran to rescue the girl.

The men grabbed a broken fence post and punched out the window of the truck.

The girl suffered lacerations from broken glass and bruising to her foot.
