It's a 3 year old car so it's only worth 1.2 mil. It was his everyday car. lol

hahah omg, you people are funny! In the local paper, www.lufkindailynews.com someone taped this incident & put it on there, it does not show a pelican. THe man either dropped his phone & it fell under the brake pedal & the idiot swerved at the same time he went to get his phone (bc he was going to fast to control the car) OR it was an insurance scam. I have dropped my phone under the brake before, kind of scary but i kicked it out, not bend down eyes off the road & freakin swerve off.... you just let off the gas, hello! haha. O yea & you would think this car would have that bluetooth capability where you wouldnt need to even have your phone to your ear or an ear piece.

I can relate.
On a few occasions I almost accidentally swerved off the road when I became distracted by hooters.....

He paid $750K for that car, used. Not "1.2 mil."

He did it on purpose to get an insurance claim. He restores vehicles for a living.
