    Calif. man shoots his way out of sinking SUV

    Posted: Jan. 18 3:07 p.m.

    ROSEVILLE, Calif. A driver whose SUV plunged into a Northern California creek after he was startled by his hands-free cell phone device escaped the sinking vehicle by blasting out the window with a handgun. The 28-year-old man, whose name wasn't immediately available, is an armed security guard at Thunder Valley Casino, north of Sacramento. He sustained minor injuries in Sunday's accident.

    A spokesman for the Roseville Fire Department said the man was traveling northbound on Industrial Avenue in Roseville when the cell phone device activated. The driver was startled and veered off the road through the guardrail. The SUV landed in Pleasant Grove Creek.

    He used his gun to shoot himself out, then flagged down a passerby.

    As the car is sinking, mother nature has got to ask itself. Does it feel lucky? I've got a .32 acp-the most powerful handgun cartridge inthe world.

    Had to add something the reporter forgot.

    Well he certainly took action.

    And he got out .

    Now if California doesn't throw him in jail for breaking some dumb law he's got it made.
