Driver, 39, admits to deliberately crashing his rare $1 million Bugatti into a swamp to claim $2.2 million insurance

A driver has admitted to deliberately crashing his rare $1 million Bugatti into an East Texas swamp so that he could collect a $2.2 million insurance payout on the vehicle.

Andy Lee House, a 39-year-old car dealer from Lufkin, Texas, pleaded guilty to wire mail fraud on Tuesday and faces up to 20 years in a federal prison when he is sentenced.

After the accident in November 2009, House claimed he had been reaching for his cell phone when he looked up and saw a pelican, causing his 2006 Bugatti Veryon to swerve off the road.

He crashed into La Marque Lagoon near Galveston and left on the engine, filling it with salt water and destroying the vehicle, the Lufkin Daily News reported.
