67 years old woman drives around 900 miles for two days, by mistake, thanks to her GPS!
Sabine Moreau started her drive route in the city of Hainault Erquelinnes, Belgium – She requested the GPS to make a route for a pickup of her friend in a train station in Brisol, around 89 miles away.
She operated her GPS instructing her to go south, and guide her to the city of Zagreb, Croatia. Instead of spending a couple of hours in her car – she ended up spending two days in a cross country journey.
During the voyage she stopped twice to fill up her gas tank, slept for a few hours on the side of the road and even had a small accident. How did she not suspect something was wrong with the given route? her explanation is as follow: “I was distracted so I kept going, I saw signs on the way, first in French then in German and eventually in Croatian, but I kept going because i was distracted – only when I reached Zagreb I realized I’m not in Belgium anymore.”
After the woman did not reach her destination – her son started to worry for her, he went to the police which searches came up with nothing – until the woman made contact.
If you ask me though, I think this 67 years old woman was just trying to setup a cool road trip, and was on her way to pick up her friend – maybe to get to some rock festival, who knows?
