Bad GPS Causes Couple to Crash Into German Church

first_imgAccording to authorities, bad GPS directions sent an elderly British couple crashing into a church in South Germany. The GPS device instructed the couple to make a right at an area without a road, sending the 76-year-old driver behind the wheel of the Renault into a village church along the Germany/Austrian border.The couple were on their way to France, but are now both in a German hospital being treated for minor injuries, according to Reuters. The crash knocked a picture of a church wall and lead to some damage to the structure’s foundation, with damages totaling 25,000 euros ($34,077).A police spokeswoman put it simply enough, “They were confused and didn’t notice that the navigation system was faulty.”AdChoices广告last_img
