SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD (Reuters) - A 46-year-old motorist driving along a busy road suddenly veered to the left and ended up stuck on a railway track -- because his satellite navigation system told him to, police said Sunday.
The motorist was heading into town "when the friendly voice from his navigation system told him to turn left," a spokesman said.
"He did what he was ordered to do and turned his car left up over the curb and onto the track of a local rail line. He tried to back up off the track but got completely stuck."
The police spokesman said about a dozen trains were held up until a tow truck arrived to clear the car off the track.
Several motorists have crashed their cars in recent months, later telling police they were only obeying orders from their navigation systems.
