GPS unit leads car down stairs
An Italian man said his car's satellite navigation system guided him to make a right turn that led his car to roll down two flights of stairs in Trieste.
The man told police he was headed for his 40-year high school reunion at a restaurant in the city and was following the directions of his satellite navigation system when he made the right turn onto the stairs, ANSA reported Tuesday.
The man said the situation took about 90 minutes to resolve and he was able to make it to his reunion party on time.
