US driver faces 20 years in jail after he deliberately crashed his rare £1m Bugatti into a swamp to claim $2.2m insurance

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. But he was unaware a passing motorist had captured the crash on video - and it showed no sign of the bird.
