His GPS made him do it, driver in Nashville tells police

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Police in Nashville say a man who made an illegal U-turn and caused a rollover crash said his global positioning system was at fault.

WKRN-TV reported Toby Leonard drove past the Nashville International Airport entrance on Donelson Pike this morning and tried to turn around. The driver of a Mercedes sedan couldn't avoid Leonard's pickup truck and struck it. The car overturned and the driver was taken to a hospital.

The TV station reported the 29-year-old Leonard told police he turned around because his GPS unit told him to.

Police said they cited Leonard for making an illegal U-turn and having an incorrect address on his driver license.
