Sat-nav sends 76-year-old into side of church
A 76-year-old man and his wife suffered minor injuries after the satellite navigation system in their car sent them into the side of a church.


The British couple were driving through southern Germany near the Austrian border when their vehicle's sat-nav developed a fault.

It directed them to turn right, even though there was no road for them to turn into.
The couple did as they were instructed, only to slam into the side of a village church.

The car was written off completely, while £21,500-worth of damage was done to the church, including destruction of the building's foundations.

The British couple spent one night in hospital with minor injuries.

ummm no offence to the driver.....

but if there was no road then surely common sense says "dont drive into that church"?

daft as sat nav can be, its your choice to actually turn or not.
