Man Drives $2M Car into La Marque Lagoon, Distracted by Bird

LA MARQUE, Texas - A $2 million car is nearly destroyed in an accident in La Marque, where a driver says he accidently drove his Bugatti Veyron into a lagoon.

The accident happened Wednesday afternoon in Galveston County.

La Marque police say the French-built supercar ended up in about 2 feet of saltwater. The driver, whose name was not immediately released, was not injured in the crash.

Police say the man was from Lufkin and had been looking at real estate in the Galveston area when he was distracted by a low-flying pelican near Omega Bay.

A tow truck was summoned to extract the rare production vehicle from the muddy pond.

A 2006 Bugatti Veyron was recently offered for sale in Jonesboro, Ark., for $1.25 million. Other vehicles of the same make have sold for up to $2 million.
