A Chicago woman was killed after her husband followed their car’s GPS navigation off a partially demolished bridge that has been closed since 2009“, according to reports.

This however is not the first example of such a calamity. The first we noted well more than a decade ago was of a motorist in Germany who, while fog and poor visibility, followed his GPS and map off the end of a roadway into a river. The map source incorrectly noted a bridge at that point, not the ferry crossing which he might have waited to take.
