GALVESTON, TX (KLTV) -

An East Texas man drove his very expensive vehicle into a lagoon in Galveston, and it was all caught on tape.

A civil suit between an East Texas man and an insurance company  was scheduled to begin on Monday, but has been pushed back.

Andy House of Lufkin, crashed his 2006 Bugatti Veyron into a Galveston lagoon back in October 2009.

His insurance company, Philadelphia Indemnity Insurance Company, claims House wrongfully filed a claim for the damages incurred in the incident.

House claims he dropped his cellphone, and when he picked it up, he was distracted by a pelican, which led him to drive the vehicle with an estimated value of $2.2 million into a three-foot deep lagoon.

Philadelphia Indemnity Insurance says they're not liable for the damages to House's Bugatti.

A nearby motorist caught the accident and captured it on video, which was then posted to YouTube. WARNING: There is graphic language in the video.

A new trial date is not yet known.
