Sabine Moreau, a 67-year-old women from Belgium, wanted to go about 90 miles to pick up a friend at a train station. But instead she followed the directions from her GPS all the way to Croatia, 900 miles away.
She told the press that she wasn’t paying attention.
Here’s the story:
Put too much faith in technology and you may wind up in Croatia. A 67-year-old woman from Belgium learned that the hard way after she followed (faulty) directions from her GPS device.
The woman only wanted to go about 90 miles from her hometown of Hainault Erquelinnes, Belgium, to pick up a friend at the Brussels train station. Her GPS device sent her about 900 miles to the south before (during the second day of driving) she realized that something was amiss. It’s unclear if she entered the address incorrectly or if the GPS was faulty.
Discovery explains that the driver, Sabine Moreau, stopped twice for gas, slept on the side of the road, and “even suffered a minor car accident” along the way. She told El Mundo that she wasn’t paying attention. (Read more here.)
