PENNSYLVANIA (WITI) — Has your GPS device ever gotten you lost?
A West Virginia man says his GPS is to blame after he drove his truck into a river!
According to WNEP in Pennsylvania, the 24-year-old driver drove into the Susquehanna River — and ended up swimming to the other side.
WNEP says the fire chief said the driver’s GPS device told him he could take State Route 2025 and cross the river.
A sign states that the road ends — but the driver apparently didn’t see it because it was late at night.
Suddenly, the driver and his truck entered 40-degree water!
Rescuers say the driver is lucky to be alive — and WNEP reports this is actually the second time this has happened this year in the same area.
You may remember an episode of The Office — when Michael Scott drove his vehicle into a body of water — based upon GPS instructions.
Ironically, the incident involving the West Virginia driver happened near Scranton!
