(Newser) – Police surely hear all kinds of things from drivers looking to deflect blame after an accident, but a man in College Station, Texas, gets points for originality. He told officers that he swerved to avoid a turtle, a cat, a squirrel, and an overhanging tree, reports the Eagle of Bryan-College Station. The 33-year-old ended up hitting a guardrail and an actual tree, but neither he nor anyone else was seriously injured. Police didn't buy the animal story and charged him with his second DWI.

2nd DWI? If he continues his drinking and driving..yes, he could end up with a roadkill.
