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.

that is a prime example of NOT using a cell phone while driving.Personally if I was there seeing it happen..you would see me on the side of the road laughing my *** off.....Dumb ***.

Man every person has forwarded this story to me, what is funny though is that its got a similar color combo to mine. Moving this to the general forum.

I wonder what its costs to dry out a sixteen cylinder,quad turbo?
Betting the engine is junk, water doesn't compress. just one gulp is all it would take to hammer the motor.

Aside, if the guy can afford a Veyron, albeit a used one, why the hell can't he afford a bluetooth headset? Betting that question will keep him awake for a few nights.

Are there Pelicans in Phoenix?

one of the local news channel had a news story about the guy who drove his Veyron in the salt marsh.Turns out he just went out and brought another one.The one he drove into the water was a 2006 model and the one he just brought was a 2008 model.From the news story said he wasn't planning on driving the new car,but to turn around and resell it.
