Do you brake for animals? Will you go out of your way to avoid squishing a furry animal? One man in San Diego recently landed his BMW in Mission Bay on Saturday morning after trying to avoid a squirrel.

Lt. Nick Lerma of the San Diego Lifeguard Service said the car was driven by two young men in their late teens to early 20s. The San Diego Union-Times reports that the car left the road on the northeast end Fiesta Island and drove into the water around 7:20AM.

Police do not believe alcohol was involved. A tow truck was called to pull the car out of the bay. Neither driver nor passenger were injured, and the squirrel is believed to have gotten away.
