Calif. driver shoots way out of his sinking SUV

ROSEVILLE, Calif. - A Northern California driver is lucky that he was packing heat when his SUV veered off the road and plunged into a freezing creek.

The 28-year-old driver was startled when his cell phone rang, a Roseville Fire Department spokesman told the Associated Press, and the SUV went off the road, through a guardrail and into Pleasant Grove Creek.

The driver, an armed security guard at Sacramento-area casino, used a handgun to blast his way out of the quickly sinking vehicle.

He suffered minor injuries in the crash, and flagged down a passing car after shooting his way to freedom.

glad he got out, but getting startled from a ringing cell phone to drive into a creek, maybe he shouldn't have a pistol.
I was thinking the same thing.....
