Trucker In Indonesia Nearly Dies After Google Maps Directions Have Him Drive Over A Cliff

A desolate road cuts through the jungle

A trucker in Indonesia barely escaped with his life after pulling up a route from Google Maps to reach a desolate village and following the route — directly off a cliff.

The incident was recounted in the Jakarta Post, describing how truck driver Agus Tri Pamungkas used the online directions to hep him reach Singakerta village with a truck full of rocks. He became lost along the way and used Google Maps in an effort to get back on track, but the app told him to follow a route that took him high above the Wos River on a road that was not suited for cars.

The truck driver said he became worried when the road grew more narrow, but said he was stuck and had no choice but to continue along the dangerous route.
