Bus Accident Blamed on Driver's GPS Distraction
Well, it might have only been a matter of time before something like this happened, thanks to the soaring popularity of those handy GPS devices.
A charter-bus drive in Washington state ran into a pedestrian bridge last week. Seems that the driver was paying attention to his GPS device -- and not to some warning signs on the road.
The accident sent 21 of his passengers, a high school softball team, to the hospital though it appears that nobody was seriously hurt.
Know any tales of GPS dependency causing accidents or otherwise causing unsound driving behavior? Please drop me a line or post away...
