JAKARTA (THE JAKARTA POST/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Truck driver Agus Tri Pamungkas was not sure how to get to Singakerta village in Ubud, Bali, to drop off the truckload of rocks he had driven from Banyuwangi, East Java. So he did what many lost drivers do: check Google Maps.

Unfortunately, the app led him down a route that ended with his truck falling off a cliff into the Wos River near Banjar Gelogor, Lodtunduh village in Ubud.

Gelogor village guard I Ketut Sumardika said Mr Agus was following a route that was recommended only for motorcycles........

If you're a passenger in one of those, make sure you unlock the auto-lock so you can jump out before it plunges down.
Or else you'll get kidnapped and thrown into the sea
