Almost 100 People in Colorado Took a Google Maps Shortcut . . . and Wound Up Stuck in a Muddy Field

We’ve all basically given up on doing our own navigation and turned that responsibility over to Google Maps, Waze, and the rest of ’em. But that can definitely backfire.
There was a big crash on a road leading to Denver International Airport on Sunday, so almost 100 people wound up taking a detour that Google Maps suggested.
And . . . they all wound up STUCK in a MUDDY FIELD. It turns out the detour was a dirt road that Google Maps NEVER should’ve recommended, and after a few cars got stuck, everyone else was trapped behind them. (CNN)
