Elderly Couple Crash Car Into Old Church, Blame Faulty GPS System

gps in churchAn elderly British couple recently got lost while driving around Germany, so they decided to consult their vehicle's GPS navigation system. As it turns out, the device was totally faulty, but the couple didn't realize it until they had already crashed into a 19th century German church -- because, apparently, the GPS system told them to. The church suffered about $37,000 in damage, but the septuagenarian lovebirds were fine. The 78-year-old driver reportedly blamed the accident on the "machine," and not, as many would, on the fact that he's 78-years old.
