    Man distracted by bird drives Bugatti into marsh

    Nov 12, 9:34 PM (ET)

    LA MARQUE, Texas (AP) - 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.


    Prospective buyers better get a carfax on that!

    And here's another man who thinks he's too important to miss a phone call.
