A flasher makes a bus drive into a police station, and a pelican makes a bugatti drive into a marsh. No one controls the wheel anymore, it's up to outside influences.

Soooo, the pelican caused him to drop his cell phone, and lose his concentration while driving. Sounds like he was 'given the bird.'

Any lawyer pursuing the possibility of suing the state for a million dollars in damages?

I'd like to see some pictures from, oh, 6 weeks later after the saltwater corrosion has really had a chance to take hold and flourish.

I'm guessing he may have planned this as an insurance scam. Wonder if they are looking into his finances?
