LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A trial has been continued in the lawsuit involving a Lufkin man who drove his million-dollar car into a Galveston lagoon.

The civil trial was originally scheduled for Monday in Galveston.

[See a copy of the full complaint filed in federal court.]

Philadelphia Indemnity Insurance Company filed a lawsuit in federal court, alleging that Andy House made a wrongful claim in the October 2009 damage of his 2006 Bugatti Veyron, estimated at a value of $2.2 million.

House drove the vehicle into the lagoon on Oct. 1, 2009, saying he had dropped his cellphone and when he picked it up, he was distracted by a pelican and drove it into a three-foot deep lagoon.

A nearby motorist caught the accident and captured it on video, which was then posted to YouTube.

A new trial date is not yet known.

    At this time last year, a guy by the name of Dak Prescott was still on the draft board. In fact, the Mississippi State star didn't hear his named called until Saturday during the fourth round. Luckily for the Cowboys, Prescott turned out to be the hidden gem of the 2016 draft class. The NFL AP rookie of the year was in Longview Friday night for a fundraiser supporting the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Pines.
