Wrong turn leads Germans from home town to Austria

Apr 10, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: El Paso Times

Instead of a five-minute trip home, a wrong turn led to an all-night drive for a pair of Germans that ended when police stopped their car in far-away Austria for heading the wrong way on a six-lane bridge.

"They were stopped early Tuesday after their car grazed three other vehicles while on the wrong side of a busy bridge in Linz, Austria's third-largest city."

That's more than just a "wrong turn".

"Wednesday's statement says the driver's son picked up the unnamed Germans—his 77-year old father and his aunt, 70—and drove them home."

Yikes. These two shouldn't be on the road at all. Sounds like their son will be attending another funeral pretty soon.
