Driver Shoots His Way Out Of Submerged Car

An unnamed 28-year-old man was driving over a bridge in Roseville, California when his phone activated and startled him. He drove his station wagon into Pleasant Grove Creek, where it sank six to eight feet under water.
The Roseville Fire Department said the man used his handgun to shoot out his vehicle window, giving himself an opportunity to escape and swim to safety.

The man flagged down a passing vehicle and was treated for minor injuries by emergency crews.

One of the comments on the story questioned the wisdom of a man who can be startled by a cell phone carrying a loaded firearm. Then again, the dog that ate the homework is not much of a threat, either.

Wouldn't have mattered which way he shot. If he was totally submerged, the bullet would have slowed down about 6 inches into the water and virtually stopped anyway.
