GPS error: she finds herself with her car hanging from a wooden bridge

A funny accident recently took place in Thailand. A woman found herself stranded with her car on a bridge because of her GPS.

This car accident is probably one of the strangest in recent months. According to several Asian media, as The Vibes, a woman found herself stranded on a Thai bridge. She just wanted to cross a river in her car. But not knowing the place, she helped herself to son GPS to navigate.

She would have been better off not using her GPS. It was by following his directions that she found herself on this famous bridge. The problem ? It is absolutely not sized to accommodate a car. Moreover, the photo of the scene circulating on the internet shows that it is barely wide enough for a vehicle to drive over it.

His GPS advises him to cross a pedestrian bridge

The bridge in question is, in reality, built only for pedestrians. Motorized vehicles are not supposed to pass over it. However, as surprising as this behavior may seem, the driver still tried his luck. Her GPS told her to cross it in her car, so she started driving over it without asking too many questions.

Of course, his attempt to force his way through did not work. The car being too big for the bridge, it ended up being completely blocked even though it had traveled about fifteen meters. The construction being 120 meters long, suffice to say that the driver found herself in deep trouble.

If the driver is out of trouble, the media do not know what happened to the car. Obviously, one of the wheels would have gotten stuck in a hole in the deck, which would have had the effect of block the vehicle. However, by removing it, the emergency services risked damaging the bridge.

“I was focused on the GPS and didn’t look around. I thought the bridge was sturdy and probably used by other people. When I got stuck, I was very scared, because I was in the middle of the Yom River. I was afraid that the car would fall into the river, so I got out of the car to look for help.”, said the driver to the Thai authorities.
