That's what you get for insurance fraud.
It’s taken a few years, but this Bugatti Veyron has finally received justice. Back in 2011, a guy named Andy House crashed his 2006 Veyron into a Texas lake. He claimed that an errant pelican caused him to swerve off the road and into the water. The car cost him $1 million to buy, but he had it insured for $2.2 million. You can probably see where this is going. After a long investigation, House has now pleaded guilty to insurance fraud and faces up to 20 years in the slammer.
He might have actually managed to get away with the scheme if he hadn’t been a complete idiot. For starters, the whole thing was captured on video. There was no sign of a pelican or any other bird or living creature in his path.
What’s more, House left the engine running after the Veyron went into the water, resulting in the supercar being completely ruined. After the claim was filed, investigators quickly realized this guy was full of shit. After the whole pelican thing was debunked, House lied again and said he dropped his phone while driving. The insurance company didn’t buy that either and sued him for fraud. But before this particular water crash incident even happened, House apparently tried to bribe someone to steal the Veyron and torch it. This guy is getting what he deserves.
