A Spanish tourist, who was only in the northern rivers for one day, had more adventure than he had planned.
Detective Greg Moore told Echonetdaily, ‘The driver of the vehicle was following his GPS rather than the road and drove down an embankment on Ballina Road in Lismore. There were no injuries sustained and he will continue on his journey once he is assisted out.’
The male driver was in town to attend a meeting at SCU Lismore and was using his GPS to direct him there.
He told Echonetdaily, ‘I was following my GPS and it said this was the road to turn off’.
I asked if he had lost faith in using GPS? ‘Yes, I will be more careful following it next time.’
