Everyone has ended up in some weird places thanks to a “recalculating” GPS, but one woman in Tobermory, Ontario, might just take the cake for the worst final destination: the bottom of a lake.
According to the Toronto Sun, the 23-year-old — who, for obvious reasons, chose not to speak to the media — was driving through an especially bad nighttime fog and relying a little too much on her GPS for guidance. It was raining and visibility was difficult, so when she approached a boat launch at Little Tub Harbor, she wasn’t actually able to see it. When her GPS told her to keep going, she ended up driving straight into Lake Huron as a result.
The woman was able to roll down the window, grab her purse, and swim to shore before the car actually sunk, and according to police, she’s in pretty good spirits, all things considered. The car has already been removed from the water, the woman suffered no injuries, and no charges have been pressed — but the whole story has definitely inspired me to start printing out my driving directions again.
