OOPs an accident yeah...maybe a bigger downpayment was needed for that real estate he was looking at.

The Veyron’s powerful engine gurgled like an outboard motor for about 15 minutes before it died.

Yep better leave the engine running to make sure it's a total loss..

Seriously a bummer at least no one was hurt.

Maybe the bird was on his pnone. Or in his hand. That's so busted! I guess he never figured on being video tabed as he diliberately drove his car into the water without making any attempt to stop or steer out of it. i feel sorry for the car, not the idiot driver!

Most crooks get busted because they're dumb, then a few get busted because they are unlucky, he fits in that category. That's some pretty good video, once they slow it down, and see not bending over to look for the phone, he's **** out of luck. Not enough to do him criminally, but this guy is gonna be tied up with this claim FOREVER, not only isn't he gonna get paid for a looong time, if ever, but he's not driving that car anymore either.

Sure looks like he waited till the water was closest to the road and drove it in.
