Low-flying pelican blamed for accident to supercar

A low-flying pelican was the unusual reason given by an American millionaire for a car accident which ruined a million-dollar car.

Texan Andy House was on a test drive of his new Bugatti Veyron, claimed to be the fastest production car in the world and one of only 15 in the United States.

Explaining how he skidded off the road into a lagoon in the car crash, he said he had dropped his mobile phone and after picking it up had been startled by a low-flying pelican, causing him to lose control.

Despite his car being a write-off and, presumably, the subject of an accident claim, Andy was unhurt so is unlikely to be looking for personal injury compensation. However, film of the car accident is becoming a hit on YouTube.
