A child was flown to the hospital by medical helicopter after the pickup truck he was riding in veered off a Montgomery County road and crashed over a swimming pool, police said.

The crash happened around 7:30 p.m. Thursday along the unit block of Ridge Road in Telford.

The work truck was traveling along Ridge Road when it suddenly turned onto the lawn of a home, crashed through a backyard fence and came to a rest over an in-ground swimming pool.

The truck's front passenger tire was left dangling over the pool and pieces of the wooden fence could be seen floating in the water.

No one at the home was hurt, police said.

It's not yet clear what led to the crash. The child's injuries were not lifethreatening, police said. The driver was not hurt.
