Man follows GPS directions onto train tracks, car destroyed


Someone’s been recreating episodes of “The Office” in his spare time.

A California man drove into a Metro North commuter train last night in upstate New York because “the GPS system [told] him to turn right, and he [turned] right onto the railroad tracks.”

You read that right. Because the GPS “told him” to turn right, he turned right then had his car smashed by an oncoming train. (He, himself, was just fine.)

What’s sorta ironic here is that the guy is a computer technician, not some old man luddite who hates technology.
