LA MARQUE, Texas – A man blamed a low-flying pelican and a dropped cell phone for his veering his million-dollar sports car off a road and into a salt marsh near Galveston. The accident happened about 3 p.m. Wednesday on the frontage road of Interstate 45 northbound in La Marque, about 35 miles southeast of Houston.

The Lufkin, Texas, man told of driving his luxury, French-built Bugatti Veyron when the bird distracted him, said La Marque police Lt. Greg Gilchrist. The motorist dropped his cell phone, reached to pick it up and veered off the road and into the salt marsh. The car was half-submerged in the brine about 20 feet from the road when police arrived.

Gilchrist said he doesn't know if the car was salvageable, but in his words, "Salt water isn't good for anything." He says the man, whose identity hasn't been released, was not injured.

A 2006 Bugatti Veyron was recently offered for sale in Jonesboro, Ark., for $1.25 million.

Link to video of the removal from the marsh. This is the car featured on the cover of Car and Driver as the most expensive sportscar and the fastest. Too bad for him, hope he learned a lesson.

That was awesome! I didn't see a pelican. Looks like he was distracted by something else & just drove into the water. Dumbass...

Nice video, BlackHammer.
Question is was he alone?
Doesn't seem to be any hard braking... He's okay in that nice car, that's the main thing.

Imagine how far he would have gone into the drink if he was going top speed of 407 km/h ( 254 MPH ) , or the splash that would make

That's what happens when you're too wealthy for your own good.

They might be retards but at least they didn't drive their car in the ditch.

BTW I an thinking about the insurance company that will be asked to cover this "acident" and writting a 1500000$ check while watching this video
