Man drives $1m Bugatti into marsh


A Texas driver has driven his $1m Bugatti Veyron into a saltwater marsh, after apparently being distracted by a low-flying bird.

The driver said the pelican swooping into sight caused him to drop his mobile phone - and he swerved into the water when he reached down to pick it up.

Police say they do not know if the car can be salvaged, but the driver was not injured in the incident.
