Police say a driver's global positioning device caused him to drive into a Pennsylvania river this week.

The (Easton) Express-Times says the man's GPS led him to drive along a bicycle path in a park. When the man realized he couldn't drive on the path, he reversed course but found he couldn't go that way either because of a tunnel under a low bridge.

Police say the man was unable to stay on the bike path because it narrowed, and his car rolled off the path sideways into the Lehigh River in Easton. Police say the driver wasn't hurt, but he was issued several traffic citations.
