You're probably used to seeing all types of things along the roadway, but you've probably never seen a swimming pool or at least part of one before.

It happened Monday morning along Pennsylvania Avenue in Pinch.

Crews say the pool collapsed on top of the hill, causing it to tumble onto the roadway.

The collapse also caused a storage building and deck to fall.

The owner, Carl Lucas says he's just thankful no one was hurt, "The shock still hasn't come off of me. Still in shock. But at the same time, my loss I keep thinking someone could have been hurt. I'm just thankful no one was in an accident or hurt."

Pennsylvania Avenue was blocked for sometime until crews could remove all the debris.
