If you love expensive exotic sportscars, this next video will make you weep. Two days ago some genius down in Texas drove his $1.6 million Bugatti Veyron right into a lake near Galveston.

Here's a bit of the report from the Galveston Daily News:

The man, who refused to give his name, was looking at real estate in Galveston.

About 3 p.m. a low-flying pelican distracted him as he traveled north on Interstate 45 just south of the hurricane levee near Omega Bay.

The man jerked the wheel, dropped his cell phone, and the car's front tire left the frontage road and entered a muddy patch, which foiled his attempt to maneuver away from the lagoon.

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

So, so sad.
