A 77-year-old tourist who blindly trusted GPS got into an unpleasant situation.
A 77-year-old tourist on an Alpina B3 Touring was let down by a navigator and ended up stuck on a hiking trail leading to a village located by Lake Wolfgang in the Austrian state of Salzburg.
The man completely trusted the device and followed its instructions, ignoring road signs and warnings of passers-by that the car would not pass on this road.
Despite the fact that the path was clearly narrowing, this did not stop the elderly gentleman, he continued to move forward until there was no place left to squeeze through.
In pictures released by the St. Gilgen fire department, the car was literally squeezed between a fence and a rock.
The left side of the Alpina B3 Touring was eventually damaged by the railing, but the driver and passengers got out of the car unharmed.
The police who arrived at the scene checked the stubborn tourist for alcohol, but he turned out to be sober. He was fined for ignoring traffic signs, and after the rescuers helped him free the stuck car, the grandfather continued on his way.
