An 81-year-old Australian man named Eric Steward took a wrong turn in New South Wales country town Yass, reportedly on his way to buy a newspaper, and ended up on a major highway. He drove almost 400 miles before pulling off and asking the advice of a policeman at a petrol station.
“This little old man came up to me saying he was lost. He handed me his mobile and asked if I could speak to his wife,” Victorian Police Senior Constable Clayton Smith told Reuters.
Steward claims that after taking the wrong turn, he just went with it: “I just went out on the road to have a drive, a nice peaceful drive.”
