Patricia Maione, Massachusetts woman, blames GPS for crashing into golf course

A Massachusetts woman ended up in a sand trap Monday after her GPS reportedly made her take a wrong turn through a cornfield and onto a gold course.

Patricia A. Maione, 46, was arrested Monday after her Buick LeSabre landed in a sand trap at the Whitinsville Golf Club in Northbridge, Massachusetts. According to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, officers documented a statement from Maione which reads:

stated that her GPS had told her to turn left. She stated that this left brought her into a ‘cornfield’ and once she was in the ‘cornfield’ she kept driving trying to get out of her ‘cornfield.’

According to reports, police were called when a neighboring police department spotted Maione’s green Buick Lacrosse driving at speeds of 45 mph on the golf course. The Uxbridge officer that alerted Northbridge police had been reportedly following Maione after her boyfriend complained that she broke into his home, violating a no-trespassing order. When Northbridge officers arrived, they discovered the car stuck in a sand trap with the rear wheels lifted off the ground.
