    Calif. man shoots his way out of sinking SUV

    ROSEVILLE, Calif. (AP) -- 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

    He shot his windows out? Huh, what did you say? Can you repeat that? Sorry, I can't hear you, what did you say?

    In all fairness, reasons for going into the drink set aside, at least he got out.

    Good thing he had a handgun with him.

    I bet it was a .45. A 9mm wouldnt have been able to get him out of that situation! /sarcasm!
    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
