It seems technology will not always lead you home. A woman in Canada drove right into a lake due to an error in the navigation system.

The 23-year-old woman was driving on Thursday night in a town called Tobermory, Ontario. Since the area was not familiar to her she was driving with the assistance of a GPS device. As reported by Toronto Sun, the driving conditions were very difficult around the area and there was a lot of fog as well.

The driver took a wrong turn and from the boat launch and the car landed straight into the Georgian bay. She was able to roll the windows out and get out the car before a power failure would have taken place. She was driving a red Toyota Yaris. The lake is almost 100 feet deep and the water was almost 4-degree celsius.

"How the launch works, it's not an airborne thing. It kind of goes off the road and the launch just drops all of a sudden. So she would have been driving on the road, and then all of a sudden just dropped and hit the water," said Constable Katrina Rubinstein-Gilbert in a police report.

The police also said that there were no injuries to the driver. There were also no charges pressed. The car however sunk completely to the bottom of the lake.
