Sat-nav pensioner wrecks rare Rolls-Royce

9th June 2010, Comments 0 comments

His 1953 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn was one of only two left and German Josef Rossfeldt's pride and joy. But that was until an 85-year-old blindly following his sat-nav came along, a report said Wednesday.

Rossfeldt, 57, had a heart attack after the octogenarian obeyed his navigation device and did a U-turn on a motorway slip road in Bavaria, crashing into the classic automobile, the Bild daily said.

Rossfeldt, an author, has recovered his health but his car is a write-off, the paper said.
