Video Of Bugatti Veyron Actually Crashing Into Texas Lake from rayvelline on Vimeo.

Last week be brought you a story of a Bugatti Veyron that crashed into a saltwater lagoon in Texas, with the corresponding (and heartbreaking) video of the supercar being pulled from the muck. Now it appears as though actual video of the accident was caught on film – and hosted on YouTube for all to watch.

The driver reported attempting to miss a low flying pelican. We don’t see the bird, but we do see a lot of water flying into the air.

The owner, who remains unnamed, was reportedly traveling to Galveston, Texas on Interstate 45, when the accident happened just south of Omega Bay.

Note: Several videos showing the crash have already been pulled from YouTube, so we’ll attempt to keep the page updated with a working link, but please let us know (by commenting on the post) if the video is no longer availble.

    Yeah, the guy that took the video is a douche. He is the one that keeps getting youtube to pull the video claiming copyright.
