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.
